Now that's a pretty good shot Natley! Just look at those gorgeous eyes! The focus is right there, the dept of field is pleasant.., forget about the easy Photoshop corrections, this shot is already great! For me the cut of the legs is OK! Bravo Natley! Proudly South African capture! This is front page stuff!

my comment is very simple, this photo is first of all very good and sharp, then you captured optimally the light in its eyes.Excellent photo.
The eyes and facial expression makes this one special.Well captured.
Maybe try a portrait-style crop of the head and manes.

I think this is a nice picture of a wild lion, you got a eye contact.
The picture is sharp with nice DOF, maybe you could add a bit more contrast but thats a minor.
About cutting legs: This is ok it's worse with whole legs and the feet cut.

Great photo, I think it could be improved by closer cropping and making it a portrait

Très beau et très expressif portrait remarquable par la finesse de ses détails ; il est tout de même domage que le sujet soit amputé de ses pattes.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
