[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Chobe National Park, we found a lion at sunset.. or should I say, a lion found us.

Sharpened, Neatimage'd, and cropped a little (there was a lot of empty space at the right. When you have a lion staring right at you and you're in an open air vehicle, it's a little hard to concentrate on the perfect framing).

I hope no one's getting bored of my cats, I gave you all a few weeks off while I was in Egypt... and don't worry, I didn't take any more lion photos there! :)

Hi Ian
The overall impact, colour and mood here is really very nice, also the way he sort of fused with the BG,
But I think it is a also bit sharpened too much, especially on the face, it lost the natural look.

What is good in this picture is the harmony in warm colors and an out-of-focus background. But I am questioning the interest of the out-of-focus foreround. May be it is better than having shown the rest of the Lyon's body ?
May be under the sepcific circumstances of this picture that was the right thing to do ?
