Congratulations, Andy on your 50th post! I think you marked this moment well with this photo. He has a very melancholy look to him. I like the coloring as it seems very natural. The portrait composition is wonderful. Well done :-) Thanks for sharing!

A job well done Andy! Like Jaap wrote; the tight crop is excellent. It's almost unbelievable that you shot this through glass. Your best shot so far imo.

This is avery nice portrait, Andy.
I like the composition abd POV very much.
Maybe little dark in the face but thats a minor nit.
Good details and nice colours.
Very well done.

Andy this is superb, I cannot believe this was taken through glass (and probably very grubby glass at that).
A stunning image of this amazing creature. I am drawn to Lions, being a Leo, and this capture is perfect.
Excellent pov, the lighting is faultless in my opinion.
A great image, and congratulations on your 50th post ....
Hi Andy, the thumbnail doens't do this one justice. It has a very nice atmosphere. The lighting is very nice, soft and moody. Everything here is great. My only suggestions would be to give him a little more space to look into and maybe darken highlights would tone down the white on the muzzle. They are minor points though on an otherwise great shot.

Excellent portrait Andy,
Congratulations on your 50th Post.
I know how much of a job it can be to get the Lion at Whipsnade. You're a very brave man to go there during the school Holidays, I bet that's a nightmare.
I like the low POV and good sharp clear detail. Good colours and well composed.
Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the week.

All I can say is this a dynamic photo, and I am amazed at how incredible the details are considering the glass.
Congratulations on a superb image, great job, and TFS.

Lovely soft lighting and richly saturated colours combined with your tight composition make this a very pleasing portrait of the lion. You did very well to get this from behind the glass. Excellent work, a pleasure to view. TFS.
