    Visited the Brookfield Zoo last Wednesday to see the Christmas lights. While there I spotted a Tiger enjoying the warmer than usual afternoon outdoors. C/C welcome! Thanks for looking.

    He/She is georgeous,
    although i'm a dog person so i wouldn't go in for petting tigers...

    comments on the photo though:
    the background looks a bit funny (green and red speckles)
    is that on your original or just the web version/my monitor?

    perhaps a faint blur to just the background would smooth them away?
    just my thoughts,

    Something about tigers, I don't know what.

    Brilliantly executed shots, nice work.

    Wow, you have captured my favorite animal that I love to photograph so brilliantly. My only hope is to see one in the wild someday. All in all, great work Steve, I am impressed. You are improving by the day.

    Very good tiger portraits.
    Don't mind the noise here at all (higher ISO than usual?).
    The subject as such is just too fascinating in itself.
    Will you give him/her the prints?

    :wink:

    Thanks KenCo for the comment. This is just my 2nd visit to a zoo for photography purposes. I enjoyed it! Can't wait to go back when I have more time.
