    As a photographer and an expert at using Photoshop this photograph offends my sensibilities. To portray a beautiful wild animal being walked like a dog is stupid. We must never forget that lions are not safe to walk down our streets. The editing job is horrible. How does the author explain the shadow next to the lion but not on the woman? This is not art, it’s junk IMHO. – Bob

      Everybody is entitled to an opinion and yours is definitely credit worthy! I did a disclaimer about some issues aired concerning digital (photoshop) concerns. The art is authentic street art but I don’t any information on the photographer.

        My argument is not so much with the technical aspects of the photograph as with the intent to display a wild animal in a domesticated role. Siegfried & Roy on October 3, 2003 ended their career as expert animal trainers when Montecore, a seven-year-old white tiger, went out of control forcing Roy to place himself between the tiger & the audience. The big cat mauled Roy to a point where nobody expected him to survive. This cat had been bottle fed by Roy and raised to obey his every command. Still, it is a wild animal and turned on him.

        Depicting wild animals as docile pets in Coke commercial and animated movies is a dangerous slippery slope. Kids grow up watch these portrayals and have no fear of the animals shown as friendly, cuddly creatures.

  2. As an visual artist, I am quite honestly having trouble with CAA computer aided art. Even thought he end results are sometimes great. To me there is NOTHING like hand to paper combat – I think that many greater artists would agree, and it is not a matter of old fashioned. It is a matter of taste.

      The intent was to display/portray the art as developed by the artist on the street not the photographic image of the picture created by the hands of the artist. I agree there is nothing like paint to paper, oils, water-color and acrylic. However, I do see some uniquely awe-inspiring artistic talent in being able to present scenes other than on canvas that seem so lifelike.

    This photo is impressive, but I remain convinced that it is a photo montage. This is seen as the proportions are not too satisfied. But it is a good subject. Sharla good weekend
