The Golden rim lit lioness
An image made in 2008 December, this lioness was posing right on the safari road and was looking in the direction of light falling on it through two trees. Under exposed by 2 stops and in PP too darkened the image a little more. C&C most welcome. More can be seen @

Nice effect here Alwan. Since we don't have rim light on rest of the body I would go with verticle compo cropping about 1/3rd of pixels from right and some in left side to balance the composition. Well seen and made. Thanks for sharing..

De'light'ful , Alwan. The lifted head towards the light makes it look as if she is feeling the light, like she feels the breeze!

Was this in camera or pulled down later? I am unable to really tell from this image now, the effect is certainly nice but why would anyone underexpose on a grand scale here is my question?

A creative mind is a restless soul...

Thanks all for viewing and the comments! Thanks for choosing this as IOM, thats a lot of encouragement. I would not have known this had it not been the test message from Sriharsha!!! Thanks Dude for drawing my attention!

@ VMR, yes it is underexposed in the field and again fulled down during PP. Thanks for the view and the comment.

With best regards
