"The most wonderful thing about Tigger's, is I'm the only one!"

Well, here's hoping he is the only toy of Chris Robinson in this challenge -- but I doubt it. :P


It's not finished, but between Basic editing and needing to get at least a few hours of sleep before work it is as done as it's going to get before rollover.

**Greetings from the Critique club**

first off i must thank you for taking the time and entering the challnge,

Your photo, To me i think you used the rule of thirds well, tiger is in a good spot empahsizing his face, (its better then just taking a whole picture of him)

I think you could have used a black backgroud and really made his color stick out well, it would show more dimension also

the photo isnt all that sharp, could be sharper but not too much.

overall i think your photo is ethicaly composed well, but its just not a great subject, kinda just blah

Good just keep shooting

Although the photo is sharp, I don't think it has good composition. It just feels rather dull, unfortunately. Try different angles, alter the lighting?
