[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We went to experience a "walk with lions" in Zimbabwe, just outside the tourist town Victoria Falls.This young male was not interested in walking at all.

I like what I did as far as aperture in concerned, but feel I should have filled the frame more. The shadow on the left of his face seems to lift him from the background.

Critisism welcome...

i think you did well..i tried some workshop ideas but didnt get too far with what i thought i could do
the pose is good
closer is better and dont be held by the 3:2 format..a square is ok too!!

Hello Oscar,
The photo is well composed in this format.
However, you could crop and make a tighter composition, if you shooted with enough resolution to do so.
The almost same color of the dry background dont help so much, so using a wider aperture would isolate better the subject.
The macrow's workshop is helpful in terms of tonal and color saturation.
Literaure says lions rest 20 hours a day, so its a matter of luck to catch them in some kind of activity.
Well done,

Hi Oscar,
Very good image...
Simple compo! Good colors!
