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):

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

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.....

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.

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?
