This is a shot of a rapidly pacing tiger I took at a zoo last summer. Fortunately (humanely,) this zoo gave this bad boy some acres to roam. I wanted to have a blurred background to show its motion as it passed, and negate the fence, so I set the FZ-1 accordingly, but unfortunately it blurred more of the subject than I would have liked and more of the fence showed up in the end shot. I futzed with this in photoshop using a plug-in called "Scatterlight" that emulated various diffusion filters (...and then some). Obviously altered, but not decided if this could be considered "salvaged". I go back and forth on this one... any thoughts are appreciated.

I'm a fan of this one as well Nick. Very nice. Maybe just clone in some of that green and yellow into those white patches on the ground there. Those white patches are a bit hot and take the eye off the tiger, just IMHO. The effect is excellent for this.

All the best Nick, print it out and hang it hang up IMO.

Danny.

Nick. I think it's an awesome shot. Great colors & effects too. Love it.

It would be worth framming and hanging.

Thanks for the feedback... I never liked this one due to the motion blur. Greatly appreciate your taking the time to give it a look. Thank you.

THAT is one heck of a "photo"

I would agree with nzmacro to add some green into the white spots.

Like the rest of the folks..........a great wall-hanger

Oh and Bob dont try and take a photo face-on of the bullet:idea:
