This shot was taken in a wildlife park in Thailand, last month during my holiday there.

I think this is the best shot I've made till now (started with photography a year and 2 months ago)

What do you think of it?

Very nice but would like to see more of the tiger and maybe a brighter tiger too.

the composition in this shot is excellent. Really effective.

I agrew with previous coment about it being a lil dark around the tiger. Maybe PS can brighten this using shadow enhancment.

Very cool shot.

Did you wait all day for the positioning or were you lucky?

Love the tiger, of course. I like this shot because, to my eyes, the forms of the rocks with the deep shadows are the subject, and the tiger is ornamentation for the rocks,

Thanks for the comments,

as tigerwings1st said, the tiger was not my main subject, i have some other pictures of the tiger alone wich are brighter and sharper and more detailed.

when i passed by, the tiger was already laying there, 'cleaning' himself so I was just lucky. I took many shots of the tiger and just waited for him to look down.

Very nice shot. Very sweet as is. Color saturation and perhaps a little sharpening might liven it up, composition is excellent. Maybe a tweak on contrast...but overall very very nice.

I'd like to see your other photos of the tiger! I like how his stripes curve around his hind leg -
