Classic lioness behaviour carrying her cub by the scruff of its tiny neck. Beautifully done, Marc - just enough rim lighting to identify what we are seeing here!

Always enjoy seeing something different and this is very nice, but I think it's just a bit too dark and the outline is not very clear.
Regards,

Many thanks Des.

Agree the outline is not all encompassing, but one can make out it's a Lion & cub depicted here.
It's very difficult most times to capture 100% of the rim lit outline, and often you don't want to.

I feel in this case less can be more. IMO.

Well done! Just enough light to get the idea. Love this kind of artistic approach.

Interesting image, nicely thought out. I am sure this would be great as a big print, the little jpeg just doesn't have enough.

Something a little different. Just enough rim light to make this work.
