I really like this black and white version of this photo. By removing the color it really lets you enjoy the photograph for it's high level of detail and great exposure. This is a great example of less is more. Thanks for sharing this one.

Fabulous! Thank you for joining my "Anything Black and White" challenge! Good Luck!

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this at the springfield mo zoo
Time
I took this in the afternoon , in bright sunlight
Lighting
the lighting was bright and even where the lion was laying
Equipment
canon eos 50D and canon 100-400 lens
Inspiration
I love the lions and big cats, I waited for over a hour for the lion to get into the right position for a great shot
Editing
I used topaz to turn it black and white. I used the burn and dodge tool in photo shop to darken and take out the background. then applied topaz glow to the image
In my camera bag
canon Eos 7D canon d markiii canon 70-200 f2.8 canon 100-400 lens
Feedback
you need to study and see what time of day offers best lighting and to see if the animal has a certain time it goes to desired area.
