Tiger: Model by TVD-Photography Tiger: Model by TVD-Photography
This is one of the tiger cubs. After a few months they have gotten much bigger but still pose nicely for me. They are still not 1yo yet, next month and they will be :)

Pic taken at Melbourne Zoo. Print available here --> [link]

Thank you in advance for all :+fav:'s I'm sorry I can't reply to all of them but appreciate every one :)

**EDIT**
Holy moly take a load of this edit by :iconbubblywums: this just blows me away seriously I just can't believe it. It just goes to show I seriously need to learn more about PS. Rather I need to upgrade my PC and get a better version too :faint:

I have to say Dani, this is easily one of the best tiger photos i've seen in a long time. The composition is really unique, and it's a great take on the 'rule of thirds'. What really brings this to life is the amazing depth of field you've managed to create. The focus is perfectly positioned on the head, with great bokeh in the background, which really brings the tiger to life. This is further enhanced by the amazing colours you've managed to capure.

The thing I like most about this is how wild it looks. Despite the original setting, the way you've structured the shot and the natural angle of the animal shows a side to the behavior of these animals that's not usually photographed in such close proximity. It really is a stunning capture :)

I really struggled to find something I could critique on this piece. Even now all I can find is the slight glare on some of the lower logs. Was this taken through glass?
To me it really does seem a perfect shot :)
What do you think?

The intensity of this shot is literally overpowering... You seem to have captured the soul of the animal through his eyes! :eager:

The colours and saturation (?) are perfect and well balanced too, giving this shot a clear edge and good sharpness. :thumbsup:

This is a beautiful shot. You can see every tiny detail in this, right down to the details on the fur, which is absolutely amazing. The angle is perfect, and there is an expression that the tiger has, that intense yet calm look, that is absolutely perfect and you must have been very lucky to get. And the colour in the picture just blows my mind because it's so balanced and vibrant.
