HI SPike83,

Your White Lion Photo is amazing. I am launching a health and wellness website in two weeks, featuring and crediting several photographs of wildlife/movement/nature in black and white, would you be interested in having this photo exhibited and credited along with five other artists' work?

If interested, pls respond at giotocca1@hotmail.com, with subject Lion Photograph, its beautiful!

Magnificent! All this negative space and the high contrast makes you focus on the beauty of the lion. Well done! :clap:

Thank you for your interest, but unfortunately I can't really say yes.

I also made a lot of websites and I would not suggest to take a full picture as a background.
