One of three female tiger cubs at WHF. I've altered the background as it was a wire fence - perhaps not 100% but my first attempt at changing a background and I couldn't resist uploading this. Comments and/or criticisms and suggestions are very welcome.
Many thanks to PhillipMinnis for his GEA and to John (lifesnapper), LynneJoyce and Alan_Baseley for their UAs for Amur tiger cubs. I'm glad you liked them and am thrilled with all the awards.

Having a good old gnaw but still keeping a watchful eye on you, Ann: love the laid back posture with one leg almost dangling there.
You seem to have done a fine job of altering the b/g........I would not have known had you not mentioned it.
And many many congrats. on the awards for your last image......very well done indeed.
Ronnie.

A wee practise for the future. Excellent colour quality and detail, holding the attention of the tiger intent on gnawing through the log.

I love this shot of the tiger cub - have one very similar and am struggling with the background as well. Will show my attempt in a day or two.

Ann the tiger cub is superb.Great pose and eye contact.
A very good attempt at changing b/g.
If you use Elements or Photoshop, in Levels you will see three eye droppers.
If you click top one then on area in b/f which should be black, it'll darken the b/g
but will also darken black bits in the tiger and any dark areas in f/g.
You can bring those back by doing a layer mask and brushing over the areas where you want to bring back detail.
There is probably a video link on site to show you how to do this.
I used to clone out area all over to make b/g black but it takes patience and time getting ground edges
of subject.

Nice effort. Tidied up in a mod, and added a little more space at the top.

Couple of tips: Zoom in, a lot; then a lot more. Holding down shift when you click the paint brush paints is a straight line; if you do this on a curve, like a whisker, shift and click in small increments to follow the curve neatly and precisely.


Regards


Willie

Changing the background is a hard and tedious piece of work. You've made a good attempt at it, and the advice given is excellent.
The tiger cub is adorable no matter the setting.
