I agree with the others - excellent picture and I can't think of any way to improve it. Actually I like the domestic cat pictures too - wish mine was a different colour - it would be so much easier to photograph him (he's black).

Great photo! Love the head on view, you wouldn't think it was taken in a zoo. Not sure you could improve it, maybe blur the background a little more? I like it the way it is and the tiger is the focus of your attention as it should be. Thanks ~ Clare

Thanks everyone for your kind comments
Alison, i would love to see some pics of ur cat.

Clare, I will try out the background blurring.

lol Ian, thank god that a) he did not look too hungry at the time and b) there was a glass window between us (which gave me a bit more reassurance then a) did).

Hi Lefty this is a superb shot, just thought I'd take a quick look through your portfolio.
Its a little dark, I suggest take up the contrast and brightness by 25% each, and work from there. you could get a stunning result because all the details are there, I may even lighten the eyes a little, because the eye contact in this shot is superb!
