Mr. Whiskers.

That's an awesome shot. Love your close crop, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2009 03:44:09 PM
This one was yours? I should have guessed. Your ability to capture the soul of animals is unsurpassed! Its amazing the connection you feel when you look at this. But the technical quality is amazing. I swear that krinkled up nose is popping out of my computer screen!

That's just ferocious! It would be nice to have the eyes a bit brighter, but this is still well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 10:03:29 PM
Oh, nice kitty, kitty, kitty. Those eyes are incredible, and they looketh not to be friendly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 08:29:16 PM
Yow! That's one freaky kitty! Great capture!

That's a powerful and dramatic image. Not often one get's the opportunity to photograph a Tiger displaying his ferocity like this. Very well done and impressive shot. Love those bristly whiskers and those fangs. 9

Great snarl and some sympathetic PP to draw attention to the face. I might have backed off the sharpening on the whiskers a little (or dulled them) so that they didn't come out as bright white stripes - I think they detract a bit from the face and eyes - especially on his left hand side.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 10:41:45 AM
wish it were a little darker in the lower left
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 08:46:29 AM
Great capture of that attitudde...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 06:09:46 AM
And herein lies the lesson: own a cat at your peril!

Great detail, especially in the whiskers.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 12:09:28 AM
Very impressive expression. I wish it was just a bit sharper (or there is a subtle motion blur?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 10:16:28 PM
YIKES! Not a happy camper! Fantastic shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 09:46:13 PM
thats one pissed off cat...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 08:11:32 PM
Whoa, great face to capture, what a moment. Nice DOF too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 06:13:44 PM
Nice shot. Looks a little mad or hungry... 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 03:07:25 PM
INTENSE! Great capture and good use of natural toning. The whiskers and expression are fantastic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 02:32:14 PM
Powerful and impressive image. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 01:50:35 PM
I would suggest adding some more contrast and playing around with the colors in this one, to make it pop a little more.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 11:08:26 AM
Excellent timing, great capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.

03/15/2009 09:54:52 PM
Nice catch
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 09:19:58 PM
The front teeth look so little compared to the others. I had never noticed that before in tiger shots. I guess the four big ones get the job done well enough.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 09:14:30 PM
Chills me to the bone! Excellent capture of the Tigers expression. The rock on the left is a bit distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 08:38:49 PM
Awesome! Very intimidating shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 06:12:01 PM
Holy crap! I hope this was with a telephoto. Great capture. One of the top nature shots in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 06:02:40 PM
Fabulous action shot full of animal instinct. Among best of show.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 05:56:17 PM
No bars. Color is good. How could you use this? It is scary. Those whiskers are dramatic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 04:46:58 PM
hope you were not too close to the tiger :D
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:26:15 PM
Wow, that's one intense look! Great capture!

03/15/2009 10:04:55 AM
Terrifying, i think the overcast day hurt the colors

I dont care if this was taken in a zoo, this is an amazing image. what a great print this would make for a fan of tigers. i love everything about it, the white balance, the sharpness or the whiskers and fur, the intense look in the eyes.. a really great shot. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:19:30 AM
I think some more saturation would have helped to bring this out some more.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:59:32 PM
I'm hoping to leave comments on as many photo's in this challenge as possible... out of (currently) 1124 images, I gave 31 of them a 9. Your image was one of those 31.

There are quite a few "big cat" images in this challenge, what makes this one stand out is that all of the others almost look posed... calm big cats sitting dozily facing the camera. This on the otherhand conveys some of the savagery and ferocity of such magnificent beasts. I hope you had a very long lens on your camera lol, I would not fancy getting this close to a 10ft tiger with teeth like that!

Good luck for a strong finish in this challenge.

03/14/2009 10:56:53 PM
That is just fierce looking! Wow!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:46:58 PM
Whatever you did, you probably shouldn't have done it :-) I like this capture. It seems a little bit flat to me, but not too bad. It's nice to see the response from the tiger.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:19:46 PM
Great capture.

WOW. Yeah, that's pretty much it... The detail on this is incredible, as are those teeth...

Super sharp capture of the moment.

Great catch! I really love the details and the DOF! Hope he wasn't hungry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 04:36:53 PM
That is not a happy cat - never a good sign when they plaster their ears back and wrinkle the nose. And he has awesome teeth.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 04:27:05 PM

03/13/2009 03:28:23 AM
Kitty not happy. A great candidate for the lolcatz website when the challenge is over.

I find the contrast/saturation a bit low and the mid-highlights a bit disappointing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 07:27:28 PM
Wow, frightening expression! Excellent shot, nice and sharp.

Beautiful capture of the Tiger looks like he's really pissed off
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:32:09 PM
Great timing. It looks like there is some window reflection, but that assures me you are safe. I'm wondering what this tiger is upset about to your left.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:27:20 PM
Very intense.

cool capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:36:54 AM
He had mere seconds to react, and growled in surprise and shock, flattening his head to brace for the shock.

*PANG!* The frying pan smote him cleanly, leaving a bruised bump and dazing him completely.

"I told you to take out the garbage last night Henry!" yelled his wife.

Henry rubbed his sore head and muttered under his breath. His mother had warned him not to marry her, but he hadn't listened, and now his life was just a series of being beaten by a Tigress with a Frying Pan. He grumbled to himself and walked off to take the garbage out.

Some tiger he turned out to be.
