I´m glad you´re back, Henry. And with a great shot.
Excellent composition and framing. And DOF as well. Very beautiful light and brown tones both in the lions and in the background. Very high technical quality.
Very-very well done.

Very good picture and very good composition, you got the right DOF and very good bokeh.

héhéhé, I suppose you wouldn't have used a macro lens..or even only a wide angle adjustment.. to do this one...
The colours of the "cat" match perfectly the background. This seems almost like a duotoned photograph.

Hi Henry, great picture you got here. and great DOF as far as I'm concerned, I like the color, as there is only one.

A cute pose. and the f8 renders him nice and sharp! It also blurrs the BG nicely. Good to see the environment, and no hint of captivity.
Goos fur texture too.

The main appeal of this photo is the monochromatic composition. About the DOF, I wish it is a little bit deep as the other cub at the back seems to be floating. Anyway, it still is a good picture from you.

Just plain amazing, Henry, what a beautiful character study of the lion cub, with the sunlight really enhancing the detail and color tones in the fur to the very best. The cub in front also stands out nicely against the out-of-focus one lying in the back - another shot with the focus the other way around might be a perfect complement to this one ;-) Fantastic color setting and detail, great capture.
