    This one was taken at Bergeron's Exotic Animal Sanctuary just outside of Picton, Ontario, Canada. They take in animals who are injured, old or unwanted and give them a place to live out their lives.

    C&C Appreciated!

    Caspertodd - I'm sure yours isn't as bad as you think, in fact, I'd love to see it if you have it online :)

    Great shot! I really like the details you captured - long range zoom or a case of closer to the tiger?

    ps another vote to see caspers shot!

    Overread - I can't be too sure of the actual distance, but it wasn't too close..LOL This was taken with a 70-300mm @ 300mm, 1/60 and f/5.6

    Oooookayyy...here it is. It was with the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 at 300mm. This was my first time out with my camera. Wish I had an IS lens since handholding at 300mm is difficult for me.

    Caspertodd - I don't think it's a question of which one is better. I quite like yours because it's a direct shot at the front of the face. I wish 'Thor' in mine would have looked directly toward the camera :).

    I agree completely with needing an IS lens (or VR lens in my case lol) for the 300mm shots. It can be difficult to hold steady. My shot being at 1/60 was pretty close to my limits holding steady. Anything under 1/40 or so and I'm shaking the lens all over the place..LOL

    Caspertodd, thanks! I was on this site a long time ago but didn't post much. That was back in the days that I wasn't so sure about my photography skills. I shot 16 paid gigs last year and now have a new-found confidence in my work, so I'll be posting a bunch more up here for people to see. Do you have a gallery up online somewhere?

    I do, but it is definitely not much. I literaly didn't know what a DSL camera was about 6 weeks ago, now I understand the basics (thanks to a couple great books), I am just in the practice phase now and will be for years to come I'm sure.
