Love the pose and the look of the lion, but the aberrations and the noise reduction makes it look a little too artificial for me.

Thanks for the comment. I photoshopped the shadow of the cage bars off the lion and photoshopped the actual cage bars out of the image. The warmth/ radiant color is as it was at the time of photo.

Im ambitious i will do a real safari shoot in a couple of years. Im using the zoo to practice (shadows, distance, lion's gestures, etc.)

I knew this wasn't your back yard - at least I hoped it wasn't. I would prefer you would leave the bars and shadows in place - but to be honest I didn't even notice that stuff until you started talking about it.

As I improve my personal standards change. By editing the pic im envisioning what my future pics will look like. It also allows me to push the pictures in post and give me an understanding of how much i can push the photos - taking this pic of the lion in its natural habitat probably will be 500mm + and F6.3 +

So pp is going to be a key component.

We capture and accept images of zoo animals in cages because "we have no choice." I chose differently. So different, I hope to capture images of a lion with no view obstructions. In other words and humbly speaking, I'm going Pro.
