    Hi folks, here is another image from our trip in a different setting. The tiger had a drink and went back into the grassland whilst giving a slight look back. I liked the uniform grass and how the tiger looked like a flame shining bright.
    1DX II
    700mm
    1/4000 (should have kept 1/2000)
    f/8
    ISO 3200 (should have made it 1600)

    Beautiful shot the tiger is beautifully rendered. I appreciate you have deliberately rendered the grasses quite high key, it looks good.
    You may wish to consider a curves adjustment, to the grasses the tiger still stands out nicely but the grasses have a little more depth to them..... but I appreciate this may have been exactly what you might not have intended.

    A beauty Sanjeev - happy to see you managed to capture this Tiger 'in the clear', couldn't have been easy with all those tall grasses.

    This is a neat and uncluttered image with lovely colours, nice attentive pose from the subject, well processed too, agree with Steve on that sliver at the foot.

    Many thanks for sharing, a pleasure to view,

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Nice setting and detail. I could see it cropped a little bit more. Placement of the tiger in the frame is right on.

    Hi Doc -- Well seen and executed. could have easily missed the frame had the tiger didnt stop for a Reece. Nice light, and colours look pretty accurate. Works well as presented.

    TFS !
