What a beautiful animal, captured beautifully. The background is perfect to show of this magnificent animal. Technically a perfect image, in my opinion.   Posted: 01/15/2020 15:54:37

Beautiful animal portrait. The tiger is very sharp, and the background is clean. Great capture.   Posted: 01/15/2020 16:06:17

Well framed and very well composed. I like the eye contact, very much appreciated in such shots of wildlife.   Posted: 01/24/2020 22:10:16

Howard, you nailed it! This is the perfect portrait. Detail is sharp and the background blurred just enough to compliment the subject.   Posted: 01/25/2020 07:54:22

Beautiful, regal animal, well-captured. Good background with the right D of F.
Love the sleepy or bored expression (with subtle catch lights) and especially the texture of his fur which makes me want to pet him. Probably not a good idea.   Posted: 01/29/2020 12:55:03

Technically this is a beautiful image, the background blends well with the subject, it is sharp and the detail is fantastic. I know it's out of your control but the animal looks bored out of its brain even the highlights in its eyes are just blurs.   Posted: 01/30/2020 03:40:47
