Taken at Whipsnade Zoo, lucky me, the pond was frozen and the Tiger was Catnapping on it.

Not been around a lot but thought I would try to end the year with a BANG! After all, it was The Year of the Tiger! (my year)

I'm such an idiot and forgot to vote on FS. LOL Nice! I really like the prints to the left, giving the neg. space some interest.

Exceptionally nice photograph of a tiger! Very printworthy, I'd say. In fact, since it is the Year of the Tiger, and your year at that, see if you can get this printed on the cloth cover of a blank notebook and keep a journal of the year.

This is fantastic, I'm glad there's no background at all. It draws your eye to him. I know you couldn't have under advanced editing, but for your collection I would try and clone out the prints on the left, I find them a tad distracting. It is utterly brilliant anyways though.

Beautiful! Almost like a studio shot, but you can see the ice and snow so you know it's on location. Perfection!

Awesome shot! I have never noticed how awesome tigers look with snow. They just pop!
I would have cropped the top of the photo off though. Looking at this picture with it cropped just slightly above the ear makes it a lot stronger for me. 7

Amazingly beautiful capture. The contrast of color to the white snow is wonderful.
