Hi Paul,
Prachtig pose heb je hier vastgelegd. Het ziet er naar uit dat ze elk moment kan opspringen om op jacht te gaan.
Goede focus en scherpte en prachtige kleuren door de lichtinval.

Hi Paul,
very nice capture of this lioness. I really like her pose and the eye contact. Excellent composition, sharpness, details, colors, POV and DOF. Very well done and TFS,

Hallo Paul,
Mooie Afrikaanse plaat. Goed licht. Geslaagde compositie.
Is dit door glas gefotografeerd?
Kan men tussen Lower Sabie en Satara gemakkelijk leeuwen vinden?
Sterke foto.

Hello Paul this is a stunning shot great colours, nice expression captured and good pov. TFS rgds Necip.
