    Nice view of this tiger and in some nice light. Like the rippled reflection. I could see some taken of the right. Details look good.

    Hi Doc - This looks very nice, especially the reflection and the backward glance from the Tiger.

    I feel the image could have some more depth, if you darken the water and also the grass in the bkg. Whites on the lhs of face appears a bit hot.

    But all in all a lovely image.

    TFS !

    Hi Sanjeev, nice frame, like that 'menacing' look back.

    Pano works, but agree with haseeb, darken the water & add some saturation, ditto the BKG and subject, it then IMHO gives it that richness & depth, you're almost there.

    Sanjeev a beautiful image, I too feel the right side of the tigers face is a little bright. Equally i think it would benefit from a little more tonal expression. I like the grasses and water in Steve's repost but I think the tiger is a little too saturated, your version a little undersaturated. So Steve's background and a little more saturation in yours tiger for me!

    Hi Sanjeev ... nice shot and the refection of the tiger is great , even if not being perfectly clear . Pano works well here !

    Your op is quite flat in terms of color depth and some HL can be toned down IMO . You were there and you should how things have looked . The rest is just matter of taste i.e. darkening of water etc . I actually like the RP , but would also go slightly lower with the oranges in terms of their saturation .
    Just for my info .. why are parts of the grassy background ... so blurry ? Cannot be motion blur due to wind , at 1/ 3200 sec !!

    TFS Andreas
