  2. Very nice - bad weather can often lead to good photos :smile:

    I particularly like the lioness and the tiger.

  3. Sorry you had to deal with rain, but Don's right - cloudy weather makes for some good lighting much of the time! :smile: I like your photos. One very important thing to remember when photographing animals is to keep the eyes sharp. I like that your backgrounds are not distracting from the subjects. Keep shooting and I look forward to seeing more of your photos!

    Great compositions! Interesting colors on the rock in #1.
     
  11. I think #2 (the lioness) is really good, although the stray leaf at the top of the pic makes me think of mistletoe ...

    Welcome!
    Great shots - the tiger shot is my favourite. Good as it is, but with potential for some PP.
