Hi Ed.

I like the colour shot best. IMHO both needsa little adjustment. And I hope you don`t mind my sligth Post processing in Photoshop.

I do noy mind you post processing to your liking. I was going for the backlit profile look, possibly should have darkened a little. I have other photos that show the true colors better.

I like the b&w version better because I find the green grass on top distracting. I'm not sure what the best answer would be, but I'd probably try cropping closer (may or may not work), blurring the grass in the b&w one or something like that. I might also make the contrast between the tiger and the background a bit more (tiger darker, with less detail in him), since what caught your eye was the silouette look. On my good monitor it wasn't totally clear to me that's what you were "seeing" while on another monitor that isn't as good for shadows, I can see the interesting shape. Like anything I say about pictures, take it as an opinion, and a not very educated one at that!

I find the b/w more intriguing, since there is a momentary question of whether it is a sillhouette or a shadow. Eliminating the spot of light at the base of the tail and increasing contrast to eliminate the bark detail that is barely discernable would add to that interestingeffect.

Definitely the B&W version, otherwise the greens distract too much from the main subject, and the bit of color on the Tiger.

Yes the black and white, it adds some mystery to the shot.
