Happy Lion Cub by Lane B Lewis

February 2019 - Happy Lion Cub

About the Image(s)

I get such a kick out of this image. When was the last time you saw a lion laughing? This little cub was so happy and jumping around chasing his tail, his sisters tail, jumping from one thing to the other. It was shot with a conn 5D MK IV ISO800, 280 mm, 1/250 sec F 7.1. Unfortunately, harsh sunlight. I did use a polarizer. Processed in Lightroom. I am curious to see if anyone has the same reaction to this photo as I do.

I think you've captured him perfectly at just the right moment, Lane. He stands out from the background, the light on him is beautiful, and the look on his face is priceless. He is beautifully sharp, I wouldn't change a thing. Well done!   Posted: 02/07/2019 18:35:36

Lane, this is a beautiful image. Great express. But, if it was my image I would crop it a little and have the face of the animal at the top of the rules of thirds. I burn down the rocks a little to make your eye go to the animals face. I clone out the dark line on his back and corrected the white balance. But, sometime the warmer colors looks better.   Posted: 02/08/2019 16:22:31

HI Linda,
I like your crop but I like the tones in mine. It was difficult at best with the harsh light. I have a series of him. I think he was practicing his roar and so pleased with the sound he made.( After he practically chewed his sister's tail off.) I watched him for a while with his Mom,Dad and sister. He was a hoot.   Posted: 02/09/2019 21:12:30

I wouldn't change a thing. Great composition and exposure. Very sharp! No distraction from background. Wonderful light.   Posted: 02/12/2019 18:52:19
