Travel to Tanzania (continuation). This time we are in the crater of GORONGORO, near a lioness and of its small lions which are sucking each one their turns!! There are more small lions than of dugs!! Canon EOS 300 V, Gold Kodak 800 ISO, numerisation of negative with Coolscan 4 Nikon, NeatImage for the noise. The photograph is a little noisy, but I find this sequence full of life. I hope that you will like!

Moi, personnellement, j'aime la composition. Je compte 7 lionceaux, est-ce vraiment la mère ? La portée me paraît énorme pour une seule Lionne. A propos de la photo, la lumière est un peu dure et la surexposition évidente. As-tu accentué l'image ? De toute façon l'Afrique ,c'est aussi se confronter à ce type de difficulté.

Bravo d'avoir immortalisé cet instant.

Hi Didier,
That is a really dramatic moment you have captured. Something not shown in the picture has that mother upset.(You perhaps?) The light appears harsh, but you have a pretty good exposure. Excellent detail.

Excellent details and sharpness, perfect composition and great colours. Fantastic work! Well done, Didier.

Didier, it is a "full of life" capture. It has a nice composition and details but some harsh light. Well done.

Nice shot. Excellent composition. The mother is really miffed. The detail could be a bit sharper. Nice colours and good frame.

Well done

Great moment well captured. The light was not your friend, but you handled the difficult situation well and exposure of the main subjects is good. The pose is wonderful, and has a great visual impact. Heaps actually, considering the cute little ones.
Excellent shot!

A wonderful scene, Didier. What luck to find such a family group together. There is also a lot of interest provoked by the juxtaposition of the mother's irritation and the nonchalance of the lion cubs. Such a transcendental feeling for overprotective parents.
Congratulations on capturing that amazing moment.
TFS. : )

Hi Didier, I love this shot, with mama lioness protecting her cubs from you. It is an excellent composition, and mama's action is well caught. The little cubs look so safe and fearless with her protecting them.
Well done,

Hello Didier,

amazing capture, the cubs are so cute and the lioness so protective, TFS Ori
