Hey Suha, Are you sure you weren't out in front of this Lion holding a special lamp for him to pose? the light falling on him is just perfect, it frames his face just right, great colours, good focus and the look on his face,,,,, say no more!
I'm going to set the cat amongst the pidgeons here , so to speak. This picture had the potential for a really great scene, I would have liked to see more of that afternoon, post storm sunshine on more of the countryside while still keeping the Rainbow in view, the top one third of the pic is not needed, the camera should have been aimed lower to include more of the land. Having said this, I think it is still a good pic, but could have been a GREAT photo.
Also the photographers note was very interesting, good job!
