oh, what a pretty kitty!!!! i love tigers!!! it really bothers (for photographic reasons) that fences and cages get in the way of a nice picture. is there any way the fence in the background could be removed?

HI Dennis,

glad you liked the photo, thanks for the comments, I am sure the fence can be removed by someone who is better then me at Photoshop, but I would imagine it would take a few hours to do it.

unfortunately the picture looks really "coarse".
Is that because of the compression, or is it just like this?
Would be a pity. I like the tiger.

EDIT: The colours are a little too greenish, too. I hope you don't mind; I adjusted the colours a bit and the picture looks even better now:

HI Kex,

thanks for the comments and colour adjustments, the Tiger photo looks a lot better now.

I am still getting to grips with my photo software (PSP7) so I did not adjust the photo in any way except from resizing it, so that could be the reason it looks "coarse"

I was also shooting through very thick safety glass which was not that clean !

yep.
resizing might be the problem.
did you just resize the picture or did you resample it?
there's a big quality loss in resizing pictures.

Yes I resized it in PSP7. I will try to resample my photos from now on.

thanks for the advice

Although I like the colors in the new edit by kex (played with contrast?), it was over sharpened. There is a bit of noise in the whiskers which is not there in the origional. It's interesting, though, that the other side effect of over sharpening isn't there. Halos or fringes around objects. If it weren't for those whiskers (right on the head of the main subject) I might not mind it.

I agree with djb. "Kitty!" was my first though too. Tigers are great animals.
