    Morning folks, thought I'd throw up some pics taken at Perth Zoo last weekend, my first adventure with my new 70-200 /2.8. Enjoy, and C&C welcome!

    I love how you made the tigers Soft, usually I dislike the softening like that but it really works for these, adds that Dreamy effect

    Thanks all! Yeah I like the soft effect on the tigers too, though I tend to sometimes overdo it!

    Leighthal, a lot of others feel the same way too! I love tigers the most but the hyena was really intense

    The expression on the hyena is slick. I keep wanting to crop it, but I don't see how you could.

    The expression on the face of the tiger just before him looks almost pitiful, which is really also very slick.

    Nicely done overall. Nice colors.

    Hmm I do need to put my gear in my signature. K20D w/ Sigma 70-200mm /2.8

    As for settings, the tigers I know were shot wide open at 1600 ISO [the pics are surprisingly very sharp, only the PP makes it soft] and the others would have been around f/3.5 @ 800 ISO [I know, very high ISO but I'm still getting used to the extra speed of the 2.8 & give me speed over noise any day at the zoo!]

    & thanks manaheim, I took about 20 or so shots of each and those two frames in particular caught my eye

    I've gotta agree the tigers are cool but I just love the look on the hyena.

    These photos are shiny. Nice contrast, colour. Mmmm.

    Fr the hyena, what about a square crop? Drop that fluff on the left and right and get in close to the face?

    Was the Hyena taken through glass or bars? You had to be pretty close even with the 200mm you got.

    Good thinking, I'll have to play around with that idea

    Neither, it's like a little lookout that's on eye level with them [with a small cliff-face inbetween], she came sprinting up to me from the back when I got there & just stared for ages
