Question: What do you do all week?
Answer: Mon to Fri. Nothing, Sat & Sun I rest!

Yes 1/200 with a moving lion on beastly lens at 400mm is not ideal lol

But I will work on that part thank you for the feedback and glad you like the treatment.


I think you noticed in this shot what are two important points to take care of when shooting with the 70-400 beast to explore all of its optical finess and potentials: 1) short enough exposure time to avoid image blur caused by both handshake and subject movement; 2) shallow DOF at 400mm and f/5.6. Congrats for "seeing" this great subject and also congrats for the overall exposure and tones which seem to me spot on.
