All of us were missing you. And what a terrific return you have made with this far flung gaze (the meadow reflects in the eyes) of the lioness. Very nice mood captured. Ambient light & colours with details.

As we say: Long time no see (sounds amerindian). Beautifull shot very sharp and well exposed. I love the cropping and the beautifull Bokeh on the BG. The light is very soft and the color balance perfect. NIce to see your images again. TFS.

Welcome back, I think we have both been absent for some time and have now "re-surfaced"!
An excelent portrait of the Lioness. I like the tight composition. The sharpness and detail are superb, with a good DOF, POV and BG. I like the contrast in colour between the subject and the BG too.

how are you now? welcome back :)
in a portrait, the main points of attraction are subject's eyes and the depth in it. you are successful in that. next comes the the curves/ lines of the face. you are successful in that too.
tfs this lovely photograph.

Good morning Loot Eksteen! Welcome back! I hope that your health has been improved and I sincerely wish to think that your presence here will be for long :)! As a relatively new member here I came in a time when you already left Treknature, so I had a chance to read only your responses, comments and inspiring analysis which where clearly on another level in my opinion!Detailed and thoughtful ..that is how I see your scriptures. Not always brutally correct I think but, instructive and patiently considered and inspiring ! Something.. I have never managed to learn in practice... quasi !!!;)
Well, Loot...what a wonderful new entry ...a gorgeous portrait of a strenuous female lioness carefully considering her hunting strategy ... where the tension in her eyes is obvious! Great moment perfectly captured in a frame! The technical implementation of the shot is looks great ...despite the use of your tiny, but capable little camera! Bravo! I also compliment you for the fantastic PP implementation ....

How nice to see a new photo from you. Fantastic portrait in all aspects. Impressive sharpness and details. Gorgeous natural colours with a very beautiful blurry background. The eye contact is heartbreaking. And that all in a perfect composition.

I have just one thing to say:
This is a perfect composition presenting this lioness, any technical photgraphic points are useless if the composition is this strong

I am glad that you have posted new shots here. Amazing portrait work. I am sure the lioness would be proud for such skill and touching portrait. You managed to reflect the state of mood of charming model brilliantly. Technically shot is also spot on. My congratulations and warm greetings.

Welcome back! It was way too long since you spoiled us with your great images. This is an absolute stunner of a very beautiful animal. The details of this photo are of high excellence and really exceptional. You can tap yourself on the shoulder, smile broadly and push out your chest out of pride for this portrait. I am sure there will be a few photographers that will envy you, and I for sure am one. That intense stare, the big brown eyes, the perfectly shaped snout and beautiful ears does it for me. Thanks for sharing. Love.
