This is a really nice portrait of a tiger. Were you quite close to it, or did you use a long lens?

The eyes are what really strike me - they're so lovely and sharp, and they really stand out.
I quite like the framing effect of the leaves, although those in the bottom right corner are distracting. But there's nothing you can do about that now.
The contrast is good, as is the lighting.

I feel that the tiger is too tightly framed, however. It would be better if there was a bit of space on either side, mainly so that the ends of his fur weren't cut off. The amount of space on the top and bottom seem about right, though.
Also, you could really make the tiger pop if you upped the saturation a little to bring out the orange.

It's a great portrait. I love tigers. They're so striking. :heart:

Can't get much better than this. What a wise looking cat. Although he may be wondering whether I'd taste better with ketchup or hoisin. Wonderful capture. Fav.

How you capture these creatures is amazing! Do you just have a powerful zoom, or do they somehow get you into the exhibit?
Reply
:iconamrodel:
amrodel Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2010
Thank you :)

Uhm, no, I don't have some extraordinary zoom nor am I allowed into the exhibits. I use regular 80-200mm zoom without any teleconvertors. I just spend a lot of time in front of the exhibits and wait for the right opportunity when the animal gets closer to me. Other thing is post-processing ;) :)
