Awesome shots! Love the first one the most!
Wow!! Beautiful photos!
Now that would be a great experience.
thanks for sharing, I assume you used the 100-300? I loved my time photographing lions. They are so majestic and beautiful, it's hard not to take a good picture
For me it's no contest. #2 wins by far. I like that her body is invisible in the brush. The somewhat loose framing works, too.
I am not much of a B&W visionary, but I might try #2 in B&W with the brush slightly lightened and the lady's face slightly darkened. Maybe even try almost undetectable white or black vignette.
The group of lions is a real stroke of luck. None are sleeping! It must be a bunch of yearlings, looking at the immature manes on the males. I don't think you'd find this many boys together at any other stage of life.
My wife and I spent a dull hour watching two old males sleep in Namibia. From all that, I only have a few shots where one or the other would lift his head long enough to see if we were still there. As far as I know, they are still sleeping there. I envy your luck.
Thanks everyone. Yes, I utilized the Panasonic 100-300mm on my GH2.
The Bubye is inundated with lions. During my 15 day stay, we encountered lions practically daily. The number of lions has created issues, as the young males kicked out of the prides are numerous. It wasn't unusual for us to encounter coalitions of young males in groups of three to as many as seven.
