I came across an article on “hyper-real portraits” using the high-pass filter effect on Photoshop in a recent issue of Digital SLR Photography Magazine and decided to try it on another of my recent “yawning-lion” pictures I captured at the Singapore Zoo. The effect here is rather subtle here but compared to the original, there is a bit more contrast accentuating the expression on the lioness’ face, which was what I was looking out for when I started out to post-process the picture.

Canon EOS 7D : f/4.0, 1/1000 sec, 163 mm, ISO 800.
