Stunning set of pics, Jay. Sorry Getty/AP jumped in to steal thunder. But such is life. You were there first and with the same quality. Now, what's next? Better up the ante. How about photographer goes swimming with wild aquatic tigers.... use the rubberized Nikon for that one ;-)

I like your challenge entry very much, but this one is just wicked! The look in that Tiger's eyes is just scary!! Great group of pictures!

Jeff this series and especially this image are (pun intended) the "cat's ass"! Great work man! :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2007 06:19:30 PM
Sorry mate, but hands down this should have been your entry. It's much more powerful - very well caught indeed. I like the fact that there's less tiger and more weird-underwater-predator about it. The look into camera is priceless.

Bad luck!
; )

It's a close one to call between this and the ribbon winner, as here the tiger's looking straight at the camera which is frankly terrifying! But I think you made the right decision, in the other shot there's a greater sense of dimension, with the position of the tiger's body and its tail coming out behind it. Awesome shots and congratulations on the blue!

This is an awesome picture! In fact, all of your tiger pictures are great, congrats on your ribbon.

One of the best shots I have seen on DPC in a long time!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2007 08:06:46 PM
Can it be, since you have these outtakes in your workshop, that they are not showing up in our favorites? At least not in mine. Perhaps you could put these awesome shots in your accessible portfolio - pleeeeeze?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2007 08:02:20 PM
I think I prefer this one to the blue ribbon winner.....but hey, they're all SUPERB! Well done~

Holy Molly! This one is just amazing, looks almost human-like and extremely freaky! Amazing sequence you got there.

You are lucky that there was some thick glass. He was going to tear you up...

Who would win in a fight? A crocodile or this tiger?

This is definitely my favorite of all your underwater tiger shots!! What cool images!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2007 03:55:05 PM
I never have even seen something so cool but to get a great shot of it too is just awsome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

My favorite out of the group, as is, added to my favorites.

These are really stunning images, this one is positively frightening, I feel like it's gonna jump right through my screen...awesome stuff.

this is great, what a shot...wow:)

Hard to pick between this one and your blue ribbon image as they are both awesome. :D
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2007 12:14:26 PM
if you edit this like your entry, I think it could be a stronger photo ;)

Wow! love both shots!!! Incrediable work. National geographic had a shot not too long ago of this same tiger.

Haunting image - he's in my dream that can't be good ;P
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2007 07:01:18 AM
This is awesome stuff. I think it's much more powerful than the one you entered. The eye contact is great. Looks like he's about to say, "have you gotten your darn picture yet"! But the underwater environment shows thru better in the other, so it was the best one to enter.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2007 05:33:27 AM
I think this is heaps better than your ribbon shot and that one was great and worthy of the Blue. For this one I like the colour and I think a squarer crop (mainly from the top) would make it even better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2007 04:24:38 AM
I'm so scared right now!
Great captures.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2007 03:41:25 AM
That is one pissed off kitty cat. Well, probably not really, but certainly looks the part. Love this one as well as your entry (though much prefer the B&W treatment - adds a mythical quality that way.) VERY nice work - congrats on the shots and the success with them, both here and in the real world!

06/08/2007 03:04:36 AM
i actually like this better than your ribboner. But they are both awesome! great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Tremendous capture, I too think this shot is equal to or better than your blue ribbon winner. It is a wonderful thing to see. Thanks

I think this was on the front page of the Herald Sun Jeff...this is amazing stuff
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Simply amazing! That stare is actually frightening, wonderful capture. And then on top of that that he's under water!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2007 01:41:12 AM
This is awesome... I think it could have possibly been even stronger than the one you submitted for the challenge.... great stuff and thanks for posting the extras :)
