    It's the same lion. We were lucky enough that he posed for about 10 minutes whilst drinking.

    Most of the images are taken in the early morning or late afternoon so the ISO is set quite high. My gear is first-gen so the sensors are not great at noise control.

    Otherwise some of the images have been through psedo-hdr processing to increase the colour reproduction of the natural scene. Sadly this can increase the noise as well. It doesn't show through much when printing.

    I know how it is shooting in that first or last hour of light. I've found that the dfine plugin does an excellent job to clear up my shots. After that I run the viveza plugin to give local contrast and saturation a slight bump.

    Perhaps see if you can get those plugins?



    My D300 isn't that good on iso1600. Without dfine the background here would be very noisy

    @sandz, it's pretty cool when they come that close! Maybe 4m away. The lens that I use plays an huge role in the sharpness of the images, the Sony G series lenses are very very good!

    @kevinva, that photo has a story behind it. I was standing face to face with the zebra. That photo was taken as is from about half a meter away. The place where I was staying has herds of Kudu, Zebra, Giraffe and various other buck that are relatively used to humans. The area is still very wild though.

    In some rare cases you can get extremely close, provided that you are careful.

    I once spent a good few minutes with a male Kudu that wanted his head scratched, right between his horns!

    @gronlaura, it has done that to me several times now and I have no idea why. It usually loads them if you refresh the page.
