Hi Didier,
This is very good POV, very nice framing,
the colours and details are excellent also.
Well done!

Lovely shot!
Perfect POV and framing, great light and colours. Quality is very good too.
I like it very much.

Very interesting portrait, he looks majestic, yet well beaten up. Almost as he has to go through some hard fights to keep his throne. Great exposure and excellent composition. TFS

Appréciation personnelle pour la photo: superbe pour une photo scannée/numérisée.
Pouvoir d'évocation en moi: fort. Les seuls lions que j'aie vus étaient dans un Jardin zoologique.
Très bon impact visuel.
Pertinence de la photo pour le site: excellente.
Appréciation personnelle pour la note: complète et bilingue.
Merci beaucoup Didier.

Hi Didier,
Friday Night Party night.
Only time to see this post deserves a big smiley.
TFS. Have a great weekend.

He sure looks proud. Maybe I will meet him - hopefully not too close.... (I will visit Serengeti soon). Excellent picture!

this could be a motto head for a family crest...so proud and fearless..
one point...you have taken this in tanzania which seems pretty obvious but....you have listed the location as tours..?
i suppose that is your home town...i thought the location was for the shot...so you get a place on the map..it means all your brilliant shots for africa etc are for france..
especially the lioness with the cubs feeding..i didnt think that was a french zoo shot...just an observation didier
and thanks for your critique...i am running out of digi shots of animals..may have to scan some old prints
god bless
