"Tender Moment" Its a lot of fun observing horses socialize and interact with each other in the wild.

Great shot ABDurbs... and there are two up there! Beautiful, but it looks a tiny bit over-sharpened to my eyes... just some places.

Great shots. Love the hyena pup.
maewpa, did you use selective sharpening on the lionshot?

I may have done.... I don't remember. Probably selective contrast. Is it good or bad that you asked?

Good, the lioness is sharp
Just wondering, as in the morning light from behind there is no motionblur at all. Due to the 1/1250sec I guess (strong light!) She really stands out from the background.

Phew, I thought I might have slipped with the masking brush or something!


I think the selective contrast helps - contrast has an even stonger impact on potentially busy backgrounds than sharpening. Also, I remember that I had to waut for her to turn just enough that her whole side was lit - otherwise there were bad shadows on the face. Sun was bright but still low and it is not completely behind her.

Not sure it is a factor here, but I have become a fan of high shutter speeds even when they are theoretically not necessary.
