    A tiger rests in the shade of bamboo trees at Bandhavgarh. Dec 2019. Haseeb had posted a similar frame. He went in tight for a head shot I went wide giving a different perspective.

    Hi Doc -- I think you have done well here.

    My main reason for going tight was the steep angle , which is quite evident here. That leaf is looking good .

    Not on the proper monitor to comment but colours look good to me. Also you have got those details here but i would suggest you should have gone for 10k for more ss and cant suggest ettr here , as I also forgot that aspect myself.

    Nice one, TFS !

    Hi Sanjeev, each time you post, images just go up that extra notch, I really like it.

    I think you could loose a bit off the RH side, anything more might be deemed at being a bit 'picky' , keep up the hard work, it's paying off!!!

    PS 1/50 you must have hands of a surgeon.

    A fine shot Haseeb, I think the colours are good. I am guessing you used one of the Mahindras or Suzukis that was designed for two in the back, I mention it because the ones I went in (two rows of seats in the back) didn't have anywhere convenient to place a bean bag.

    Hi Sanjeev .... well this image looks really nice on all counts . A really nice step into the right direction . Are you " crazy" with that kit and the settings used .... but at this size it does work . The tiger gave you a sweet expression in his face .... almost cute looking .
    I might try and push the colors a bit more .... of the forest . The colors of the tiger are looking good to me.

    Nice one Sanjeev and no problem with the angle ... when being close , just a shortcoming nothing we can do about at times .

    TFS Andreas

    Lovely capture Sanjeev (not Haseeb)

    Well composed and pose from the subject is great, love the outstretched paws and eye contact. Pretty sharp for 1/50s!

    Agree with Andreas, I would also 'push' the colours a bit further - especially on those bamboo leaves.

    I noticed in some other images posted on the Forum that the Tiger's coats are a tad more orange. Really difficult for me to comment on colour or make suggestions, but I feel that a bit more vibrance would be good. Your call

    Thank you so much for sharing, I truly enjoyed viewing.

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea
