When I was looking for an image for the One Four Challenge I came across a series of shots taken at Melbourne Zoo Sept 2010. A mother and 4 well grown cubs were out in their enclosure, romping and chasing and wrestling with each other.
I spent probably an hour and shot TOO DAMN MANY photos and never processed them because many were very underexposed and back then the software and my skills were not up to the task.
This image of the cub chasing his litter mate under a climbing frame caught my eye as his face and front were lit up by a sunbeam and it was possible I could do something with that.
Turned out with LR 5 it was pretty easy and a few tweaks had it looking lots better with exposure and clarity and contrast. Its been cropped a bit too and I used the adj brush on the background to darken it up a bit and remove that distraction.
This was shot on the 70-200 F4 IS lens, on the tripod from a good 10+m from memory.
