Nick, a great shot, of course. Pretty nice score, but the toughest challenge of the year. Do I get partial credit for being physically nearby? :-)

Superb action shot. One of the best zoo shots I've seen on DPC. A welcome change from most of the other static zoo shots we see.

Quite a few big cat shots kicking around, but I think the action makes this the best of the lot.

I've seen this one before. Looks like a Doctornick pic (if I'm not mistaken). Loved this one before, STILL loving it! <10>

He certainly looks intense.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 11:02:01 AM
Great take. Colour and sharpness in the lion are great. Hope this isn't a cheesy put-together, but I'll assume not. 7/10. Only thing detracting is the lion looks at a slightly odd angle, which confuses what he is actually doing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 04:26:17 AM
You have captured this truly majestic animal at a wonderfully active moment. The levels are off in this picture... even an Auto Levels in photoshop would have helped quite a bit. It is a shame that this technical detail was not paid adequate attention.

Fantastic look on the lions face! Great moment!
