Vladimir the Tiger (6)

By PhilT2
Perhaps my most satisfying image from Tuesday at Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
One of those annoying shots taken through square mesh fencing which you can't get close up to and the subject is not far enough away from the fence to avoid ghosting of the mesh. Had to centre the tiger's head in the space between the wires.
Result is a massive crop and ghosting around the edges which I have tried to reduce by using a light vignette.
I just had to have that shot and am pleased with the outcome

Thanks to Graham and Bill for their awards on my lioness

Despite the difficulties posed here, you have managed to produce a very fine image of this tiger.
Seems it is not too pleased with your attention given that snarling appearance.
