    These are my four favorites by far... I'll add some more later, I took 3 rolls of 36 exposure film! C&C always welcome and encouraged.

    Take care,
    Chris

    Well, I already know (for sure!) who is going to really like this last one here! I just KNOW it!

    The second looks overexposed.

    Focus in the first is not QUITE right, just a little off, it is on the cage in the background, but not too bad. That one is good, anyway, since tigers are always on the move and almost impossible to be focused on all right! I tried and failed myself the last time I was in a zoo.

    The scene in 3 is downright endearing. What an emotional moment you captured there! :D

    Thanks a ton! I think the second is a bit overexposed, but oh well, nothing I can do now, and the chimp is just too perfectly posed for me to dislike the shot.

    I agree, trying to focus on a moving tiger is near impossible!

    I think that about scene 3 as well. There were two sisters that had a boy and a girl cub each. They were truly astonishing to watch -- I have a BUNCH of lion photos, including daddy:

    First off welcome! Love the last two, (#4 the most). The first one your focus point seems to be the cage, and that tosses the tiger out of focus, or makes him seem a little soft. Keep at it, and keep posting. There are a ton of great photographers here, the more you look here the more you will learn.

    Thanks! I agree about the focus on the first one, it was so hard to catch the tiger while he's moving.

    Here are a couple more from that day. I know there are a ton of amazing photographers here -- I've learned a ton already, and hopefully I'll learn lots more.
