    I think they're both pretty nice, though the turtle looks a tad dark.

    I love the tiger... the setting he's in is really neat. Unique to see the cat in the water like that, and the colors and patterns of the floor of the pool really set off his fur. You've got his eyes in the shot, and there seems to be almost an expression on his face. Really nice. It does look like he may be a bit overexposed around the white on his face, but that's a bit of a nitpick.

    Very nice overall, IMO.

    Oh, and I LOVE the avatar...:lol:

    I really like both of these mostly because I sense some emotion from them.

    1. About all I might have tried differently would be to put the tiger lower in the frame if possible.

    2. May be a tad underexposed but I think it ads to this photo, I like it.

    Beautiful shots, especially the first one, I don't like the editing you've done though, and that's just personal taste.

    I love the long life lived old man character in the turtle. You really captured that well.

    Wow, thanks for all the comments. :)

    Whites on the tigers face were indeed a little blown. I was trying hurridly to get the shot before he bolted. I really despise shooting through the double plexi. :blech: I always have a good time just watching the animals though. Great way to spend a day off.

    The tiger shot is excellent. When looking at it long enough, I start to think of it as a painting rather than a photograph. Great job!
