This a lioness square, taken in the zoo. here.
I cropped to left and the right, to get a suare aspect ratio. The height is not a crop.

Got the male lion here, photographed 8 months ago. In other previous uploads you can see images of her, the male or the offspring, if you browse the gallery.

Monopod. IS on.
Weather: no rain:)
PP in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CS3.

Thank you. Nice day.

Very nice shot of this lazy-looking lioness! :-)
Incredibly detailed with stunning clarity.
Brilliant light and colours.
Perfectly even exposure too.
Great BG-blurring DOF.
Well done Annick!


Hello Annick,
This is a fine portrait of the Queen!
A cool attitude and superb details, the expression is well captured...
Tight framing works well as it makes the viewer focus on those amazing eyes!

Hello Annick

A lovely close up and personal portrait.
The details and focus are excellent.
Wonderful POV and DOF.
The lioness stands out well against the beautiful OOF green BG.
Well placed and cropped in the frame.


Indistiguishable from your great African images. Good detail, technical quality and framing.
