Lions and Lemur

Discussion in 'Other Animals' started by Ron Reznick, Jun 3, 2007.

  1. Just a couple of cute snaps and a cool photo. Taken while goofing off with a couple of friends (Jeff and Chip) at the SD Wild Animal Park (click lion pix for optimum render):

    Lion Cuddle 1, D2Hs, 200mm AFS/VR @ f/4:

    Lion Cuddle 2, D2Hs, 200mm AFS/VR @ f/4:

    Ring-Tailed Lemur, D2Hs, 200mm AFS/VR @ f/2:

    Going back there soon... neat place. You should try to go if you're ever in San Diego.

    Lions are marvelous
    Thanks for sharing
  3. Beautiful as usual, Ron, even in less than ideal lighting.
  4. Especially love Lion Cuddle 2. Gorgeous.
  5. Yes they are nice and sharp but the big deal for me here is how you managed to nail the exposure against the light, with out blowing the highlight areas in the background AND get great detail in the shadows!!! This is an area I need to work a lot.....
  6. Great images, Ron, as always! :smile: Superb composition on the lemur pose. SD Zoo is on my list of 'must do' - thanks for reminding me.
  7. I love that lemur!

    I love these. I'm amazed at your ability to balance the lions between the bright background. Guess I better read your book again!

    Did you bring out the lions in post processing?
  12. Excellent shots Ron. I'll go along with Andreas in my observations and have the same questions for you.

    Really nice quality. That is a "special" lens and you use it quite well.
