[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last year I was at the Amsterdam Zoo (Artis)
I love big cats, especially Lions, so whenever I'm at a Zoo I always go see them. Most hours of the day, Lions aren't really that active but are just lying around or sleeping. In the wild they do this so they will have the energy and strenght to hunt and kill.
At first these Lions were also just lying. After having looked at some of the other animals at the Zoo, I went back to the Lions. Luckely they became more active, walking around, not paying much attention to the people looking at them. There was one male and three female lions, all really beautiful.
I'm glad they became active, so I could make some nice pictures.

Hoi Annelies en welkom op TN.

Dit is een mooie foto, maar je had hem groter moeten uploaden. Je mag tot 800 pixels gaan. Je moet hem dan gewoon met een lagere jpeg quality (save as en dan de quality verlagen) saven, dan wordt de file kleiner maar blijft je foto 800 pixels. De foto komt dan beter uit.

Verder heb ik geen opmerking. De foto is prachtig. Hele mooie pose, goede belichting, kleuren en details. Misschien had je iets meer ruimte aan de rechterkant moeten laten, dan was de compositie beter geweest.


Hi Annelies
Very majestic expression on her face. Clearly keeping a close eye on whats happening around her. Beautiful coloring in the photo.

Helo Annelies

You have given this a fitting title. I would have like to see this in a bigger size. Lovely expression on the face. Thanks.

Great image Annelies. I see we share a passion for lions. You got the light, depth, focus and composition all spot on. and As Pieter said I think you should load your images larger, especially powerful pics like this one, it just enhances the impact. Well done, Rob

Prachtige foto Annelies.
mooi zo uit de hoek en bijzonder fraai van kleur.


Hi Annelies,

Hierdie is 'n heel mooi foto, die leeuwyfie lyk regtig majestieus, soos wat jou titel aandui. Sy is pure leeu. Ek stem saam dat die foto effens groter moes wees. Die kwaliteit van die foto kan nog steeds baie goed wees, al kies jy 'n laer kwaliteit. Ek hoop die Afrikaans is vir jou verstaanbaar; ek moet die Nederlands mooi lees om te verstaan.
