Unbelievable! What a shot to behold! Can this be real, it's so fantastic? Love the background, with it's sunset, trees and even the weeds.
Am I the only one who thinks that the lion is pasted on the background? LOOK: Lion's mane is definitely photoshopped -- marquee and feathered, +drop shadow.
@Kris Guico I think it's enhanced not sure if the lion was dropped in though? It's a tough call, you may be right.
@Kris Guico This photograph won one of the themes on "Wildlife photographer of the year-2013" I went two weeks ago to see the exhibit and the first thing written on the wall was that all photographs had been proven to be real, as to get into the competition (with some big money prices) they are examined. You can check all the competing photos on their website.
The best lion cub portrait ever. Big eyed and oh, so curious, and I guess very playful too. Wonderful shot, so thanks a whole heap. j.e.s.........
