This would make a great canvas! What a beautiful image that stand head and shoulders above other similar images. The details and softness set it apart. Just another example of great photography taking a well photographed subject and making it fresh and new. Great job.

This is the absolute best image I have ever seen of the Lion at the National Zoo! Did you do a painterly technique on this image? It's so beautiful!

This is great just like everyone else said. I have a question, is this a original photograph or is it edited in a photo program to get that amazing look?

First of all Marshe I am stunned. The Animals King couldn't have get a better portrait than your photo. I don't think I've ever seen such a beautiful lion and you've captured its kingship so well that I can see the crown on his head. Where your lion lives? And who takes care of him so well.
My congratulations for winning the PhotOfTheDay ௵

Stnning photo on the king of beasts, Marsha. How did you manage studio lighting for this capture? There are three distinct catch lights in the lion's eyes. Please share your setup, and post processing info for this magnificent shot, and congratulations on this outstanding POTD!
