It isn't. The African plains don't slope and neither do cloud bases.

In my humble opinion an excellent wildlife picture has been totally spoilt by over photoshopping.

Is it over photoshopped, or does it look like that because it's an infra red photograph?

Just IR I think, not the best I've ever seen using the technique, but not bad.

My favourite is the lightning picture, the shapes are fantastic.
Best regards, John

Either way, I think wildlife should be lifelike.

How on earth did that shot win? I can appreciate the difficulty of getting into the location and tracking the lions to produce the image, but the way it is presented is very poor indeed.

Did anyone else notice the 'narrator's' little goof right at the beginning....?

Quote: "....capturing this stunning shot, which stretches all the way to the horizon".

Is than not where most landscape shots end up? It can't stretch all the way to the nearest tree 'cos there aren't any.
