    1) could use fill light on lion..small branch clone out
    2) not bad. i think if you zoomed in a bit more it wud of added more interest.
    3) okk..too much glow comin from doorway
    4) seems underexposed, but like the jag/leopard
    5) cooool

    Good ideas. :)

    First off.. too small. I can't see them very clearly... But I have old eyes. :)

    The lion is awesome. But a tad dark for my tastes. I think I'd also prefer it as a portrait...

    The leopard is underexposed too...

    I like number 2 the best except for the rock behind his head , when looking at the photo i found myself lost (trying to figure out what it was)

    #1 suffers from the subject being in shadow. There wasn't much you could have done about this but maybe the high contrast forced by the lighting would make for a nice B&W. For this one, along with the other responder, I would recommend cropping way down to isolate the lion (assuming the resolution allows). It's simply lost in the frame as is.

    #2 should also be cropped IMO since the subject is lost in the frame. I think this shot could be very dramatic if the focus is good and the resolution supports the cropping.

    #3 is a great composition but the overexposure is distracting. In the future, you could handle this by taking a second underexposed shot and performing multi-shot processing assuming the subject is stationary enough to let you get 2 shots off.

    #5 has nice colors and is intriguing. I would say that the composition is wrong with the heads off-frame but the airborn subject in combination with the missing heads seems to create an air of mystery that makes the photo entrancing.

    #1 Subject is underexposed.

    #2 Could use a crop/more zoom.

    #3, 4 (bit under exposed), and 5 I really like

    I really like them...I'm envious of your expedition!
