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

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.)
