[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This magnificent beast was relaxing with the rest of his pride when I photographed him.

I’m particularly pleased about the way his eye caught the light as he looked straight at me, though I must admit it was more by good luck than good judgment that I caught the moment.

Very nice catch! Talk about a "look" ! Maybe you looked like a neat appetizer? Good job.

Bienvenido a TN Tom.
Una agradable presentacion de este enorme felino en estado salvaje.
La perspectiva y encuadre son correctos, pero la foto es demasiado clara y por ello ha perdido en parte su colorido.
Tal vez sucedió al digitalizarla... de todas formas, es una buena primera entrega.
Realicé un Workshop, tratando de optimizarla... espero te agrade.

Welcome to TN Tom.
Pleasant presentation of this enormous feline in wild state.
The perspective and frame are correct, but the photo is too clear and for that reason there is lost partly his colorful one.
Perhaps it happened when digitizing it... in any case, is good a first post.
I made a Workshop, treating to optimize it... I hope pleases to you.

It s very nice and peaceful shot, I like it. I think the light can be improved is some way with some postprocessing so I did a workshop to my taste. Hope to see more photos and critiques soon!
