    Hi all. I'm hoping there might be a few big cat lovers here :) I'm certainly one :) I'm a big motorsport fan but in the off-season there's nothing better than trying to stare out a tiger :confused: :lmao:

    These are a few taken at a chilly Marwell Zoo on Monday...

    #1 Ahhh sleepy :)

    #7 Hello

    Shot with 20D and 100-400. If you've never been to Marwell you MUST go :)

    Please tell me are these shots "too" bright? I have deliberately made them brightner than normal as I noticed my photos look a little dark on my work PC's. What do you think?

    Shot with 20D & 100-400, C&C welcomed :)

    P.S more can be viewed here - http://www.ae-photography.co.uk/130206.html

    I also have a Marwell Zoo gallery from May last year (shot with 75-300mm) online here - http://www.ae-photography.co.uk/230505.html

    These look great to me. I like cats of all sizes and dispositions. I especially like your close ups of these magnificent creatures.

    Please share more of your work asap.:)

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys :)

    The reason I ask about the brightness is because I looked at some of my photos on my work PC's and they looked a bit dark. Then I thought that all my photos might be dark and that my monitor at home is brighter than most! Argh! I was pretty shocked how different my photos looked on different monitors. That's the best thing about prints - optimised 100% :)

    I will try to post a few more, sure.

    This is the second time I have been to Marwell now (third actually but didn't take photos the first time) so I really want to visit London Zoo. Seems there are many good shots from there on here :)

    Thanks

    Don't be so harsh on yourself, I've seen your photos in your thread and they are very good. It helps to go on a bright day but not overly sunny because it makes zooming through fences/persplex etc easier IMO.

    I see you've got some cracking kit there, I really want to add a 70-200 F2.8 IS L to my kit but need to keep saving those pennies for a few more months yet :greenpbl: I assume it's your favourite lens?
