I think you made the cat too bright. I know you wanted him to stand out, but I think it goes too far. It is not natural at all. The original shot was great.

Nice capture. The environment helps the cat stand out.

boarder suits. The dark haze around the outside gives it a deep dark scary feeling which suits the main object and the saturation is nicely done.

Awesome capture but for some reason it looks a lot like a painting instead of a photograph. Good luck with the challenge!

Love the colours and exposure - If there was one nit pick it would be his pose looks a little awkward. As if he was just about to sit down.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice treatment ... the saturation really works in bringing our the tiger from its surroundings.

Nice capture. I wish I could live some where to get a tiger in its natural surrondings. Good work.

cool shot...voting as though this was in its natural environment and not a zoo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, beautiful tiger, but not in natural environment. You wouldn't have survived this encounter in the wild.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like the post edit on this one
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Don't know - while a spectacular subject, the face on doesn't do him justice. He looks stocky, and fat, not powerful and agile. The positioning of the tiger to the left is interesting, but I think it's a bit extreme. I understand that you were trying to show the natural environment around him, but perhaps it's too much? Just my opinion anyway. Still striking and nice palette.

Could be used as a danger sign! 9

the vignetting you've used works very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This picture has pop to it. I think the frame brings out the color. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2007 01:41:14 AM
Very nice colors - however the border serves more like an unnecessary distraction than an enhancement to this otherwise beautiful shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2007 12:25:53 AM
Wow - and you captured this in the wild??? MAN!!!

I think I'd get rid of the gold part of the frame. It is a tad distracting.
