    Lion shots

    Here are some shot taken at San Diego Safari Park, I highly recommend if in the area going it's a great place. After uploading I think I may have over sharpened #1 let me know what you think.

    Very nice colors and clarity!

    I don't think either of them is dramatically oversharpened, though if you reduce the sharpening just a bit, you might decide that you like them better. Hard to tell at this size without trying them slightly less sharpened.

    Love the eyes of the big boy. I suspect your sharpening on your original is spot on- downsizing to the size needed for web sharing can make them a little "crunchy". I use LR4 for my catalog, and export from there, and had to turn my output sharpening "off" to post here 'cause a number of shots looked over-sharpened. Well done.

    Keep it up Roger and the San diego Safari park may have to use them for brochures. What else do you have? I really liked the stork too.
