One of my favorites for the week.
I'm with Irishkell on this one. but I am a Cat lover to. so way to go on both. the fence is really clear even at High zoom. great job!. Voted.
i appreciate all the comments, thankyou irishkell,michael s, viapel1973,and lenscap1, for your insight.
I'm running out of things to say....but I like this. Good focus on the fence and I like just the head shot of the lion and the fact that he's not in focus. Very nice.
A lot of non-photographes end up with shots like this when they go to a zoo and try to get a photo of a lion. They don't know how the autofocus works or can't over-ride it, so when they take the shot the camera has focused on the nearest thing. I like the lighting on both the fence and the lion. Nice job.
I love how you brought the fence more into focus rather then the lion. This was very well done. You earned my vote :o)
this is very well done in my book! the fence is tack sharp as the subject should be and truly does bring me back from trying to admire the lion. I never thought chain-link fence would be something to zoom in on, but this was interesting to say the least...maybe it's just me and my old age. Regardless, I really like your entry for this week! Bravo and best of luck.
