Beautiful animal, and well caught, Steve, the tired look very evident in his posture. Wish you had more space to get a full shot.

That's a lovely shot Steve - how far away were you?

Nice shot- just one point of interest... perhaps just a bit "cool" on colour temp..?
Was the white balance in auto..? A switch to cloudy(or whatever it's called on a Panny') might have helped... :)

A quick "colour balance" adjust in photoshop- or even just drop the cyan slider in "saturation".... :)

Thanks Raghu. If you go to that picture on Flickr and slide down the page you can see two shots that have the whole tiger. I did this shot this way to emphasize his expression.

Hard to say. 20 feet or more at least; the cat was down in the moat that is in his pen and I held the camera up and used the tilting screen function.

Thanks. I'll keep it in mind. I am content with my shot though. I usually keep the white balance on auto as when I compare shots that is the most natural to me. Unless it is very gloomy/cloudy/rainiy.

One thing I just checked. I often edit on a Macbook Pro as my son is using my PC for gaming, and pictures edited on the Mac look a bit cooler on the PC.

(I am not a fan of Macs.)
