    Went to the zoo again yesturday (I do believe it is becoming my new home.. scary), and came hoem witha few keepers. I used Raymond J Barlow's method and manual focused :)confused: Ahh the horrors), but it worked (5% of the time). But they, 1 in 20 never hurt anyone with digital. Unfortunately, it was quite late so all the pictures are quite 'noisey' but I tried to revive them as much as possible.

    More can be viewed at www.flickr.com/photos/britstaddon as it is finally organized.

    Enjoy!

    That tiger close-up ... looks sooo dear, you just want to pet his nose... ouch! Not wise, I fear, if you want to continue posting comments to photos on TPF (or take the odd one yourself ... I would need my right hand for that!!! ;))

    Do go to the zoo even MORE often, will you! I like the results you come up with from there!!!

    nice shots here Peanuts! love the paws! i am sure your manual focus method was fine, but dim lighting and a hand held tele lens make for difficult photography. Do you use any software to edit your pictures??

    btw, I love the tiger portrait.. awesome!

    Thanks for your replies everyone.

    I am quite fond of the first tiger picture, even though I was lucky to have taken these in RAW or else I would have come out with this as the original.

    [​IMG]
    (Though his orange colouration is better, had to give that one up so you could at least see his eye) I used Photoshop CS2 for this. (Still haven't made a dent in the user's guide)

    I was quite lucky to get this shot as he was pacing quite a bit and when he settled down on a suspended 'bed', he closed his eyes, so I shot a few and started to leave. Luckily, I looked back around and his eyes were open so I got a few more and wa-la! One or two show up.

    Once again. Thanks :D
