Dutch Safari III  by John44

Dutch Safari in Rotterdam Zoo October 31 2012, an Asiatic Lion
Canon 5D MarkII-Lens canon 70-300 on 275 mm F5,6 ISO 250
Photo Shop CS 5 ..I mostly shoot in RAW and 95% on Aperture Priority F8 .(here F5,6) As we know F4 ..F 5 gives a nice blurred background when we need that

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything!
