Alright! I meant to critique this the second I saw it but, I didn't have enough time to write up something worth reading. So, here I go!
Once again you have done an amazing job at capturing nature at its finest. Even in this enclosed habitat these animals are still living as if they were in their natural habitat. The way you captured the lighting is very interesting. All the light seems to be coming at you and along the way it just enhances everything right down to the claw marks/teeth marks on the wood. There is a great balance between light and dark as well. You see the shadows real well in the female lion and in the tree in the background.
The big male seems to be the center of this picture but the great thing about that is, is that he doesn't stop the flow of the overall look. One thing that really contributes to this is the fact that you have a foreground, middleground, and background.
This is just such an absolutely well timed and amazingly captured photograph. Wonderful work!
What do you think?

Brian,
What an absolute delight to view. Lucky, lucky you! A shot all photographers hope to catch. Don't they just look at ease with the world, must be a good zoo?
By the way like the way you title your work. Sometimes titles can make all the difference!
Thank you so much for sharing this.
Simon

:) Do you know if he is a younger lion? Almost looks like he is still growing his mane out ~ (At least compared to the male lions I've seen who all have very long, huge manes.)

Their names are Azizi and Amara and they were both acquired in the last few years as cubs

I guess that would answer your question,I think

Thanks Amber

Ah, okay. So he is fairly young then! The two adult males I've seen I think were between 8-12 years old. :) Thanks!

Someone put a Zefarch Trojan in my computer. I had to take the hard drive to Staples to get it fixed. Shaw Cable has to send a technician to get me computer, my home phone and TV digital converter all connected again

Well the technician from Shaw Cable found out that the problem with the telephone,TV and internet service was that the connectors in the service box underneath the roof overhang had been damaged by the severe winter weather. It's wonderful to be talking to you from my own computer

lions are my absolute favourite!
It's been a long long time since I've been to a zoo, maybe I'll have to take my little cousins to the Moncton one when I'm home in the summer... if I manage to make it home.
last zoo I was at was in Calgary... back quite a few years now, saddness.

:D Well that must be Azizi and Amara! I didn't think they'd be out in this kinda weather. Azizi's mane sure is coming in; it was all scruff last time I saw him.

This is a great shot. I guess their new enclosure must be a dream come true for you photographer types, eh?
