    A tiger from Kabini forest shows the Flehmen response. She marked her territory and then sniffed something on the ground and showcased the typical response. This is nearly full frame.

    Hi Sanjeev, classic behaviour and I like the fact he's appearing from around the tree. Originally I thought the tree was a bit too dominate, but I think it's OK. Now viewing on the laptop, so I could be wrong, but just my take.

    I think removing some of the yellow in the white parts of the coat helps, in addition just adding a bit more in the Temp of the WB. Darkening the FG and busting the greens/adding some Contrast also I feel helps too, but again viewing on the laptop. If you have it, then a sliver more above. I am assuming its the 100-400 lens?

    RP FWIW...

    Thanks Steve. Yes it was the 100-400 II L lens. Your RP is perfect. I like what you have achieved here. Thanks a lot.

    Sanjeev, if you have any plans re seminars in London, perhaps we could do a very quick crash course in PP, if plans dovetail.

    Another fine image. The snarl is perfect. Though Steve's report looks both sharper and punchier, I like the darker blacks which you presented. So, maybe some combination of your original and his repost. Lotta that subtle stuff is personal preference though. I might give the animal a bit of room above if you have it. Ears are pretty close to border and our attention doesn't get drawn to the bottom of the frame anyway.
