    Thank you for viewing. C&C is always welcome.

    I was thinking a tighter crop might work but I can't come up too far from the bottom or I cut off the whiskers.

    Frank,

    I think you're right, a tighter crop might work... I think top of the ears to the bottom of the whiskers.

    Also, it looks the slightest bit soft to me - what was your shutter speed on this one? (or it could just be tired eyes)

    Great shot. As for cropping? Were it mine to crop maybe a whisker off the RHS. But no where else! And I didn't feel it to be 'soft.' But that is only my opinion. And as for ' Join me for lunch? ' " Hey, put that camera down. You are my lunch! "

    Hi Bill, this was shot at 1/250 and F16 at 300mm so it probably should have been a faster shutter speed given the zoom and the subject was moving.

    Here is the tighter crop. Looks a bit more menacing!

    I think the problem was tired eyes as it looks sharp today.

    1/250 should be plenty fash enough to freeze the movement.

    I was actually looking at this again this morning and wondering how a tighter crop and a B&W conversion would look. I can't do it now, but might fiddle with it at home this night (if you don't beat me to it).

    Tighter crop works for me, as does Donald's B&W conversion.

    It seems strange to me without the bright whites I am used to. But then, I haven't started to learn B&W as yet. Thank you for posting, Donald.

    Hi Frank
    Hope you don't mind me hopping into the fray? I had a quick play with your image to crop it as I suggested in my first post. I reckoned it was best to keep as much of tiger as possible and get rid of some of the RHS background. Then I had a little play with the colours and gave his fangs a slight touch up. I hope you do not object to me doing so. I am no expert in this , but you posted such a great shot. I think tigers are really rather special, and so I just had to add my two cents, okay...one cent's worth.
    And at the risk of trying to swim against the tide, B&W for this just does not work for me. For me it just lessens the drama of a great shot and dulls down its impact.
    As Blake, I think it was, once wrote, " Tyger, Tyger, burning bright, In the forest of the night......" And I agree. So, 'let it be,' as that fab four of mop headed insects once sang.
    With apologies if I have upset anyone with my opinions on this.

    Aww, common Ken. What's the fun if you can't get folks that don't agree with you to think and consider other viewpoints! LOL!

    The more I look at this kitty, the more I wonder what was really on his mind!

    I agree entirely with the tenet of what you say. Controversy is a major stepping stone to advancement. So, I choose to disagree with them in this case. In other cases I have agreed that a change to B&W is best. Basically I was merely expressing an opinion as to what had the most appeal to me. There was no implication that my opinion should hold sway and the suggestions for B&W were wrong! The last time I tried to walk on water I damned near drowned
    If you follow the post you will see that Joanne shares my preference for colour in this case. So what? Just two people expressing personal opinions. I simply tried to give some feed back as to the actual reason why I preferred colour to B&W in your post.
    Take care, keep safe and keep up the good work. I enjoy viewing your work.
    Cheers

    Ken
