Wonderful capture...

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo has been taken at the Western Plain Zoo in Dubbo, New South Wales, Australia
Time
The Image was taken on the 28th December 2016 at 1.15pm
Lighting
Remembering back, it was a very bright hot day
Equipment
I used my Nikon D300 with a Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6
Inspiration
It has been advertised for some time that there are 3 new born lion cubs at the zoo which have been made available for the public between 9am and 3pm daily, unfortunately the third cup walked away and would not join the pose, I tried on later occassion to get a shot of all three without success.
Editing
I removed the background, was a fence. I use photoshop for post processing, used the quick selection tool and the gaussian blur filter. I never imagined that the photo would become so popular.
In my camera bag
all Nikon cameras, D300, D800 and the new D500, these days I mostly use the D800 and D500, Manfrotto 190 tripod. lense Nikkor 28-300mm, 70-200mm, Macro 200mm, and 16-80mm, Tamron 24-70mm. 150-600mm, Macro 180mm and 90mm, Sigma wide-angle 12-24, Cokin ND filter and 910 Nikon Flash, It is a lot of equipment but usually I select the equipment for the day when I go out taking photos
Feedback
not really
