After my own heart here...I ADORE tigers! Nice softness and beautiful color. My only complaint is that I'd crop out more off the top; the greenery, though nice and establishes a more natural setting, is distracting and I would rather be drawn into the tiger's gaze immediately. Good luck in the challenge! :)

Oh how PRETTY! "My" kind of photo for sure! I love the softness of it. Too much sharpening on animal fur ruins it imo -- and this one is just right! Beautiful rich colors -- Aren't tigers just so amazingly photogenic? I hope your tiger is scoring as good as they were nice enough to score mine at :)
