I agree with Siggi This is awesome and should never have 1's 2's or even 4's
I notice that people do that on a lot of shots
Maybe the person voting thinks 1's are the highest???????????

I dont understand one thing - Who would vote this picture 1 or 2?
Is there someone trying to ruin for others to get there pic higher?
This pic might not be perfect, but its a nice 7 (like I voted) atleast. This should be looked into!

Very nice. If anything, I would like to see a bit more on the left side of the cat. Other than that it's beautiful.

Very regal...well done. Like the pose...little more sparkle in the eyes would be nice...but not always possible.

Brilliant - this did not happen by accident, those eyes are great and the result of much patience - a great photo worthy of National Geographic!

is this animal stuffed?
01/23/2004 02:43:53 AM
Beautiful depth of field. The tiger is incredibly sharp. and in focus. Texture is captured incredibly and you can almost feel the soft fur. The contrast of the green background really helps to bring out the tiger. Wonderful picture.

Beautiful. A nother shot that would have been NG quality would been a tight crop just its face and shoulders.

This is an awesome image. The colors are fabulous, clarity and sharpness of the fur... excellent. I hope this will be a print... It's going on my wish list. :-)

This is simply striking! The details in the tigers face are astounding and this has a nice depth of field. She really stands out against the background. Fantastic! 9

Excellent photo. Good detail and nicely "posed" by the kitty. The details in the face are just stunning. Nice work 9

Brilliant DOF to get most of the tiger sharp and clear. He looks very philisophical for a wild animal.

Even without the current cahllenge subject everybody would associate this image with NG! Great pose of the kitty and very crisp. One of my favorits. Good luck.

Good clarity, I feel just head and shoulders may have given greater impact but that`s only my personal preference. Well captured

Brilliant!
I went to the Zoo to try and take a photo of one of these beasties. only to arrive just after he had gone and hid in the bushes the guy next to me showed me his image on his digital camera.
It wasent yours was it? I love it!

Good eye hightlight and good expression. I like that the background is blurred as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2004 01:24:49 PM
Wonderful portrait! I love the colors and the DOF is great in that it blurs slightly to bring out the animal more, but allows the viewer to see its habitat. Well done.

Very nice shot, excellent colours of this wee kitty.... :-)

If it'd have been a little sharper more details in it's face would have been seen. Well done! 8

Holy cow, this is an insanely GREAT shot! Man, the focus, exposure, everything is SUPER fantastic! I'm blown away! So glad I was forced to sit this one out! I'd give you 10 10's if I could. 10! I know it's crazy early but this is the blue ribbon right here!
