Overall a good shot! One suggestion - I personally feel that a lion's paws are one of the most interesting features, and having the paws cropped out is a disappointment. With a little post processing you can probably tone dwon the bright spots and punch up his fur color a little.

The lighting here is definetly harsh making the subject a little bit flat and also making it lose a little color. You may consider experimenting with different crops. Maybe losing some off the top and right to put the lion off-center. The only other thing I may suggest(and I didn't notice right away) is cloning out the purple lens flare(or whatever its called) right along the bottom of the frame at the lions rear.

Nice shot with good DOF and interesting patterns formed by the trees behind the lion. If you have PhotoShop (or the equivalent), try working with the levels or curves a little to bring out more contrast and color in the cat's fur. Add a little sharpening and I think you'll like the result.

Light is hard to control when it's bright sunlight. There's a couple of spots where I think the pixels on the lions forelegs are blown. But, I still give it an A!
