I just have to ask, but is this HDR?  If so, you have done an amazing job.  9 times out of 10, animals look ridiculous when done in HDR style, but you have rocked it.  

Congrats on the DD.

Thanks so much for the Congrats! It's my first DD so I am excited about it. This isn't HDR. I darkened the surroundings a bit to add drama and did a little sharpening on the lion's face and that's about it for the processing.

Well, you certainly fooled me.  Great job on the photo and the post.   But you definitely deserve the DD.  I'm sure there will be more to come in the future for you.

Such an eerie picture! There's something about the skull of the water buffalo and the craziness in the lion's eyes that creeps me out. Excellent, thought provoking shot!
