A beautiful white Bengal Tiger that swims underwater to retrieve some food as part of his stimulating training to keep him active and healthy.

Woooohoo......Just got back from Las Vegas and lost all my money - Who cares! Thanks for all the great comments - Score took a bit of a battering in the final day but still clung in there. Have the dreaded check of authenticity but should be OK as I asked for a review before entering the challenge.
This pic made about 3 front page papers in the AU newspapers and mags etc. Really pleased - All the hard work was done by the tiger though.
Cheers
Jeff

Shots of this tiger are popping up all over the place now. I just seen one from some photog named Robyn Beck at with shots of this. I thought they might have been yours when I first seen it.

"Contrary to what most people say, the most dangerous animal in the world is not the lion or the tiger or even the elephant. It's a shark riding on an elephant's back, just trampling and eating everything they see."

Either you have another profile, or he took your pics, or you took his pics??
also this exact photo is found here: //www.news.com.au/adelaidenow/gallery/0,22613,5023347-5006374-12,00.html


well for one Jeff is a news photographer and is credited for the shots in several newspapers not to mention was validated here so he had the original file, so I would say it is safe to bet he didn't steal them. It does appear that the linked shot was taken from him though.


Thanks for the backup there elvis - Those pics are all mine - In this day and age it's very easy to take web size pics and put them anywhere. I have been inundated from people all over the world asking about these shots - I got a great show off of them and am having one done for the wall. I have even had people saying this picture should be on the net as a free screen saver - Alas that cannot be the case as there are still paying publications and printing rights on them.

I found all of the bengal tiger series are exceptional shots. It's a National Geographic level photographs for sure. Very original and you just captured the expression perfectly. Very rare opportunity too. Congratulations ^.^
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/12/2007 08:48:02 PM
The last one of the series of three that you did not submit is definitely better than the one that got you the ribbon. But who cares there is nothing higher than the blue ribbon anyway... ;-)))

Yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaah.

Told you it would be your first ribbon Jeff!! But to get the blue is just showing off. Its LONG overdue in my opinion.

Incredibly, its not your usual style of shot.

Amazing shot, I though I had a great Tiger shot this month, but seeing this blew me away.

Anyway, I wont go on, coming first in what is probably the biggest Monthly freestudy ever is testament to both this shot, and your talent.. nice one.

(EDIT) who the hell voted this a 2 or 4?

I had no idea these guys could swim underwater - that alone makes this an awesome shot (for imparting knowledge). Tones are excellent, and the face really makes the shot. Congrats on a wonderful photograph!

Very, very cool perspective... I can't even think about going to the water to escape a tiger the next time I have a confrontation with one. That face is priceless and this photo incredible!
