Good closeup!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 04:23:28 PM
Lovely direct stare and nice crop. I'd have liked the focus point to be slightly back of where it is as the nose is nice and sharp but the eyes are a little bit soft.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 09:56:12 AM
nice one but its seems that the muzzle is sharper than eyes... just six for this ;)

take care,
brano

Amazing closeup of the tiger! Great detail in the fur, whiskers and eyes. Nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 04:20:40 PM
It looks like it's time to run! Much closer than any of the other tiger shots I've seen in this challenge. Hopefully it's through glass. That tiger is really focused on you and you on it. Excellent detail.

this is very nice...your colors and tones are true to life...very rich and soft...excellent

WOW .. how amazing is this shot .. the details alone are excellent but the way you've caught him looking straight at you is incredible .. fantastic shot .. :)

In portraits, the eyes are the most critical to have in sharp focus. Although this is a very fine photograph, the lack of sharp detail in the eyes is the primary distracting feature. 7.

What a beauty! Great comp, filling the frame, and nice use of natural tones (frequently these are overdone, but this isn't at all). Excellent capture.

Wonderful and 'IN MY FACE'. I like it. I'd have sharpened the eyes a bit more... but that's a nitpick.

THIS is absolutely gorgeous. If i didn't already know the shot she has in I would think this was ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' SandyP, which in my book is a big compliment. I just started voting and obviously I have a alot of shots to look at but this gets a 10 and I would not be at all surprised to see it on the front page. If this was a shot you had in your archives i bet you jumped when you saw the challenge! /10
