I know this is very impotant photo for Sven: he loves Barbary lions and especially those from local ZOO. So this is his special way how to say "goodbye" to two youngers he saw growing. I think this photo is really a lovely tribute to wonderful young creatures, who will be obviously missed by him. I somehow do not feel like commenting the quality, which is great as always anyway - I would just advice to leave less space above their heads. But that is just a little tip.
I hope you will get to see those guys during some of your ZOO trips, Sven - and I hope they will have a nice life in a new animal park
The image is very nice. Whoever took the photograph did an amazing job! The effects you did were really good. I especially like the blur effect and the focus on the first lion and the hair. The quality of the image is quite brilliant. The concept (a Lion) isn't so original. There's too many lions, I think maybe next time you should do something more original or create something of your own. I see your ability and it's extraordinary. If you can do something like this, you should strive to do more of this type of art, or create your own types of art. If you plan on using any text in your photos, if your using Photoshop, I can make you a style. I really enjoy helping people and it'd be great to help an emerging artist, which you seem to be. If you want to collaborate, let me know. (I create text effects, etc. for Photoshop.)
aw sad to see them go. why on earth would they change their names? Thats kind of stupid if you ask me XD but other then that, amazing pictures. wish I could do stuff like this but alas, no local zoos here.
