Tiger from the National Zoo:
Beautiful shot. Is the almost spotlike effect from PP?
Honestly I'm not sure what it's from. I zoomed in a tiny bit and cropped the pic as you see it. The only PP I did other than this was increasing the contrast and slightly decreasing the brightness.
Very nice looks like he was just relaxing in the sun.
Again I really like your colours in this - really a fan of them. The only shame in this is the wall and wire appearing in the background - not something that you could really get out with the shot like this - though you could have used a wider aperture possibly to try and throw those aspects more into blur. However then you run the risk of losing the depth of detail on the cat - and I do like it when people manage to get the whole animal into focus.
If your willing you could use Gaussian blur and a layermask and try to blur the wire netting into more of a blur to lose its structured shape
Thanks again. That is the same criticism that I had of the picture but given the circumstances I didn't think I had much option.
