    The wife & I hit the Cincinnati Zoo last weekend and were lucky enough to be there early on a cool morning. Most of the big cats were being unusually cooperative.

    Great poses there!
    must have been a late feeding day - or they were being very kind!
    That tiger, I don't think I have seen one that looks like that in the flesh before - I would be correct in assuming its not a Bengal (they seem to be popular in UK zoos)

    The only big crit I have is that the first 3 seem - flat shots. Something is off with the colours I think, a little too much grean possibly?
    I would give a play around with levels and see what you can get
    (maybe a little saturation boost)

    Aside from those pp based comments that is some very nice shooting!
    edit - Darn it I looked at the cheetah shot again - such a sad looking face!
    And possibly you could try cropping the left and right of that shot - focus in the cat a little more

    The 3 Tiger shots are the best IMHO. I mostly agree with the above post. I would love to live near a zoo.

    The tiger shots look to have nice depth of field

    Very nice! How lucky for you that they all came out! I agree with Overread, but I'll take it a step further... I would crop 1 & 2 into portrait rather than landscape. #3 is my fav, but I might try to crop out some of the overexposed grass at the bottom. :sillysmi:
