This isn't the shot I had in mind and I know it's not going to do so well but the challenge was my idea so I figured I'd go with the best of what I got.

Converted from RAW and did white balance and increased the blacks, then had to do a selection and increase blacks in the neutrals, then gaussian blurred the layer mask to make it blend in. Selective colour to amp up the tiger, added the text, merged visible layers, resized, USM twice, saved for web.

Well, way to prove me wrong folks, a new PB for me. Thanks! I really didn't think this one had the goods.
