…On the downside, I am not too fond of the Bokeh produced by that lens. My eyes keep being attracted by the out of focus areas in the upper part of the image. I guess that I feel a certain lack of isolation of the main subject on its background also.
I agree with your comment, the Bokeh - especially behind the lions - is disturbing. The attitude of the four (?) lions is a strong point and Josh captured the decisive moment.
