[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was so funny watching the three male tigers at Dreamworld last weekend, the female was in heat and they boys were all pacing the island enclosure trying to pretend they werent interested in each other..This almost white fella is the oldest among them and the keepers had to keep them apart. The two younger males kept trying to get close but this boy would knock them flat if he felt like it.
Was hard to get the light right with them at that distance and in and out of the shade.Decided to leave this one just as it was.

Hi, Fiona. Never estimate these big cats as they can move with lightning speed. Nice sharp image of the seemingly resting Tiger. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Fiona, your title says it all!
I think that the lighting is pretty much perfect.
Good depth of field which focuses on the soft fur.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Fiona

Difficult conditions but you and your camera have coped very well. You have caught the lazy atmosphere very well.

Just for a bit of fun I've done a workshop just to see if I could enhance the textures. I hope you don't mind.

Bom dia Fiona,
Seem relaxed, but this look should not fool anyone, this "cat" is ready to act.
A photo very competent of you.

Hi Fiona,
Apparently sleeping but ready to spring to action in a moment.
However this is a peaceful moment, and a pleasant one too.
Good exposure in such conditions.

Nice capture Fiona. Such a relaxed feeling created from this photo. It sure makes me want to go over and scratch his head though, until I look to the left and see those paws/claws!
