I would crop out, or clone out, that fencing in the top left of the frame as well. Maybe boost the contrast just a hair, and increase the exposure on the lion just a bit as well so there's a little more seperation from the background. Other thanthat, the lion is dead center but I like it.

Hind legs look a little more infocus than the face, but could just be me. :-) Beautiful cat!

Yep, get rid of the fence on the l/h/s and the bright green thing on the r/h/s, then a pop of contrast, and all the work will be worth it.

We've been talking about head shots...next time have him lift his chin, just a little. :lol:

No, no, no! Have him extend either his ear or his forehead toward the camera. :lol:

intense!

Shot looks perfect. Nothing to critique really other than the fact I'd rather have it looking straight at me.
