[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I came across this magnificent male lion in Etosha National Park. He was following a lion couple, envying the female of the other male lion. I believe the two have been fighting over the female as this lion was wounded on his left front paw (not visible in this pic). This one lost the fight and the contest for the female.

Shot in RAW. No crop, adjusted temperature and slightly reduced the yellow. USM as a finish. All in PSE3

Hi Edwin.
it's a very nice picture you start with.
Well composed, good POV and details.
Well done.

Welcome to TN.

Welcome to TN Edwin :)
It's a great shot to start with. I like the POV a lot, tight framing works great too.
Picture has very natural colours and it's very good technically.
I like it very much.

Hello Edwin and welcome to TN. This is a very nice portrait. It's a good composition and the focus is very nice too. I do think it could do with a little more contrast, aside from that it's lovely.

Great capture Edwin. Very good sharpness, detail and POV. Well done & welcome to TN.
Happy New Year!

Excellent shot, Edwin. I must say that shooting in RAW is worth th little extra trouble.

Lovely shot, I took one similar the other day, but I think yours is better. TFS, points later, out today
