This lioness was in the Ruaha National Park in Tanzania. She had several cubs who were nursing. When I edged the car a little too close to her she immediately began to snarl. Even being in a car my heart jumped.

Hi from the Critique club!

I bet your heart was racing when you took this shot, excellent shot.

This looks like it was straight out of the camera, a little more post procesing would have really made this shot outstanding. You have such clarity in her eyes that with a little saturation they would have been amazing. The sharpening is spot on and brings out great details.

A little more contrast would not have hurt this at all and given some more depth. I am not one for cropped off ears or heads, but in this shot, it really works.

Well done on your placement it was well deserved.
