Why oh why am I even entering? Free Studies aren't exactly my strong suit anyway, and I didn't shoot anything for the challenge. It's almost embarrassing to rummage through whatever I had for the month for a "Master's" challenge. :-/

Wow... I liked the shot, but didn't expect that score. The sharp focus was pretty intense (I actually blurred it slightly), especially considering I shot it through a chain link fence and cropped it down from this–

brilliant !! this will get my 1st opps! 2nd 10 in this challenge. Fantstic eye contact, brilliant details. excellent & not overdone processing. Will be a benchmark for my future tiger shots (if I can fine one to shoot , photograph I mean). Oh and Iinto my favs too! Good luck it must be on the front page.

Very sharp! You clearly have good glass. A beautiful image although shots of animal faces in a cage (I assume...) is not as impressive as some of the other shots in this challenge. I wish the water/drool had been removed as it for some reason gives me a bad taste in my mouth (I know, I have issues! :) ). Still... 8 for a very nice looking photography.

Gorgeous, simply gorgeous! The water droplet on the whiskers is just 'icing' on the cake ;)

dramatic and in your face. That bit of drool helps the intensity. Competent work for the style of image.
