you mean this quoting work? :lol: :lol: :lol: thanks

She was sleeping when I came across her. But when I stopped under her, she did not look at me (wee just for a second though), but rather at something else which I could not see.

Like LahLahSr said, 'good model'. I got her contact details somewhere if someone is interested. :lol:

Great shot Thomas! I'm glad you were in the (relative) safety of a car!

Thanks for the great comments everyone.

Is there anything I could try differently if I were to be presented with such an opportunity again?

Hi Thomas,

Next time, if you are able, try zooming in a bit more on the first shot so as to capture less of the distracting background and make the lion the absolute focal point. But except that picture two and three already present and amazing view of your subject ! :)

Hey thomasrichards,

yeah..if you could get her to juggle 4 red balls or have her read the New York Times wearing rounded spectacles, it would be perfect!

...that's my way of saying no - not really. Those are great shots you couldn't have captured the cool majestic and absolutely assured superiority of this lioness any better way, in my opinion.

Sure, you could play with post processing - but other than waiting for 3 hours to notice her or disturb her actively at your own peril, I don't really see what more you could've done from your angle and in your situation.

Cheers :-)

Wow, thanks guys. Those comments are more than I expected.

I'm just glad to hear that I'm on the right track with composition. That to me is about the most important aspect to master in my photography.
