Not a Lion (Two Photographs)

Looking at this I was thinking, wouldn’t this make a great pose for a lion. The chipmunk will have to do though. I cropped it, did some exposure adjustments, reduced the noise, and sharpened it, then used Intensity CK to bring out a touch of detail. In the black and white (Tonality CK), I used a neutral density filter to tone down the background with a glow effect and added a slight vignette. You could do the same with Nik software, though it would take more steps. These modest steps impossible in-camera make subtle but vibrant changes to the result.
