I was about 100-125 feet from him. Used the Sigma 50-500mm w/Nikon SB800 flash on tripod to get in close. I bet the flash is what got him going. LOL

Here is another one showing more TEETH.

yes, i noticed the flash use, which made me think you might have even been closer.

the flash really makes both shots "pop". and they are timed well.

i do prefer the first one though, as it shows off not only the teeth but the musculature of the cat too.

Thank you for nice compliments. I like the first one best too. That Nikon SB800 flash will reach out 175 feet, so it is pretty powerful.

I think these are two really great shots - absolutely fantastic, jack55! But the first one is a "wall-hanger" for sure

This is a great shot. Not a word of criticism going to come out of me.

But in my opinion you are looking at this from the point of view of "Winners and Losers."

Considering (assuming that in fact your image was not selected) that there can only be one image selected for each day, why take the point of view that you are a loser?

No I wasn't thinking in terms of winners or losers. I figured there was one better, and usually that is the case as there are so many good pictures submitted. But as some said here, apparently they may yet use it down the line. However, no biggie if they don't. I mostly posted here to see if there was any improvements that I could do for that shot as in the actual shot and in photoshop.

Anyways, thanks for all the nice compliments everybody.

I think both are superb shots, but I agree the first one is outstanding! I certainly hope it gets picked but if not I'm glad you posted it for us too see.

I've wondered on the POTD myself, as other's have too apparently I'd like too see pictures submitted that the judges thought were good for the month (but obviously not the ones selected as there have to be some that were quite good or unique). I imagine with the volume this could be tricky, but it'd be nice too see as well.

I wonder who judges the pics and what they base their choice on.
+1

(and yes I know it's an old post but this great tiger shot came up in Gogle images)
