    Default Tiger of Terrai Forest !

    Hello everyone. Thank you for all your comments and suggestions to my previous post, as always much appreciated.

    Posting a Tiger image from a beautiful forest of Kishanpur Range ( Dudhwa National Park ). Tigers here are very skittish and they normally shy away from humans. We were pretty luck to get this tigress in the open but she was on the move and didn't let us click pictures. Made a few frames but in the excitement didn't exposed it properly and also the light and shadow kind of settings were not helping. But Still liked the feel of the forest and the animal in its environment appeals me a lot , hence, decided to share this frame here.

    DPP 4.12. PSCC 2020, WB, reduced contrast, picture style neutral , curves, levels, selective colour, sharpening, cropped from Top, slightly from bottom, and RHS as viewed.

    Canon 1DX MK II, Canon 200-400mm f4 IS II @ 258mm, Bean Bag.

    ss 1/2500, f/5.6, iso 3200.

    Looking forward for all your comments and suggestions, be it of any nature.

    Haseeb.

    This is lovely haseeb and I like the hesitant pose. Overall I feel it's lacking in depth & colour, but you were there. Was this under exposed, looks a bit noisy?

    WDYT?

    Thank you Steve -- As I said in the intro, it was not properly exposed and was quite under exposed , hence the noise.

    I liked your version as well , a bit too much for my taste and actually things were not that vibrant. Colours were actually close to the OP, but you have certainly provided an option to explore.

    Hello Haseeb,

    Absolutely love the scene, the beautiful path and pose from the tiger, framing is superb.

    I find the OP somewhat faded, or 'washed out', so to my mind this is what the RAW (shot in neutral picture style) should look like. IMO it deserves more vibrance and colour, as well as 'depth' like Steve said. Maybe somewhere in-between the two?

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Hi Haseeb. The habitat and the forest looks beautiful. Nicely done given the dappled lighting. Well seen and photographed.

    Haseeb I really like this one and I think your repost is well done, I prefer the richer colouration.

    Thank you Gabriela, Andreas and Jon.

    Definitely the richer tones makes this more aesthetically pleasing .

    @ Andreas — Barely got to see a Tiger in that park, very skittish and elusive they are in those forests .
