    Default Tiger on the prowl !

    A male tiger takes a walk in Tipeshwar Sanctuary. Managed to get a low angle on this again. Things are bad in relation to Covid in India. Cases are rising think and fast. Wonder when this wave will ease. Stay safe friends. Maybe I went a bit aggressive with regards to contrast and sharpening ? What do you guys think?

    Hi sanjeev ... another cool capture .
    He really gave you many options for nice photographs .

    You are on the point with your self critique !! Can you tell me why ... you pushed it ??? The sharpness looks somehow more on the " coarse " side ...

    Hope you stay safe as well !!!!

    TFS Andreas

    Hi Doc -- One of the finest tiger image series that you have captured and I am loving it.

    Agree with your self critique , why high on sharpness ? previous images were just fine IMO.

    Covid is a real headache here , no answer on its falling back.

    TFS !

    The repost looks super, I do feel perhaps the blacks are a little dense.

    Love the low POV Sanjeev, and agree with your own assessment, with your RP looking better, but the blacks on the back legs do look a tad cooked.

    Do stay safe and hope things will begin to taper off soon.

    Hi Sanjeev, the RP works for me on all counts, I would just have liked to see a tad more below, this comes back to tracking/framing in camera, if this is FF the it's just a tad too close. Like the profile, jaw open, you just needed to wait to get that left paw as viewed slightly more up and in view. Good you pushed the techs and had more SS for the walk.

    I might just clean up the BKG for cosmetic reasons, looks cleaner and again just a small series of tweaks to bring a bit more tonal range back in, and no fear of blowing or clipping any colours. Going slightly cooler I think helps on the WB.

    Well done Doc, but guess you have more pressing elemts to deal with currently, keep safe and well Sanjeev.

    TFS
