    Hello everyone.

    Posting an image of this beautiful tigress from Bandhavgarh , which we saw one late evening in Feb 2021. She was at some distance and hence had to add a TC. Still remains my last tiger sighting of 2021.

    Dpp, PSCC 2020, WB,Curves, levels, hue/sat, color balance, sharpening, NR 1 rnd.

    Canon 1DX MK II, Canon 500mm f4 IS II with 1.4x T.C., bean bag.

    ss 1/1000, f/5.6, ISO 4000.

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

    Haseeb.

    Hi Haseeb, love the wider aspect and framing and for me, placing the Tiger central works. Good techs and the POV with the FG is spot on.

    Overall, to my eye, it's all just a bit light/thin. Adding some more colour via HSL, a midtown Curve and then finally some Selective Colour adjustments just perks the whole capture up and hopefully elevates it and gives justice to your hard work.

    Well done.

    Just my take so feel free to reply.

    I though I recognised Bandhavgarh! Super scene, I like the composition. I liked yours an Steve's mod, I don't know what was it like on the day? I think Steve's is appealing but I feel the tiger a little to contrasting. I like yours but agree it needs a little pop.

    Hello Haseeb,

    So glad to see you post again! Beautiful tiger and I am ok with composition too, but do agree, OP as presented is indeed a bit thin, especially back of the tiger and FG.

    Techs spot on, POV is great, the direct stare makes the image for me. As well as reflection, which I think Steve's version brings out so nicely.

    Overall a lovely scene well captured and hopefully not your last tiger sighting for the year - still November and December ahead of us, so who knows what opportunities will come your way

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Certainly looks much better in terms of colours and tones.
