This is a great capture of the moment. I love the water droplets flying and the movement of the piece, making the tiger seem like an active and formidable hunter. It's a shame the tiger is not facing the camera, but it is a wonderful shot nevertheless.
I would like to see this in black and white to have a look at the effect - it might make it seem more dramatic, although it is also a lovely shot in colour. The framing is good, I like it off-centre in this photo, it gives a nice idea of the scene, and the surroundings. My only criticism is that the top of the focal point (the tiger) is very close to the top of the frame.
Lovely work, I have really been enjoying this series.
What do you think?

[yes, my second tiger critique ^^]

I like this photo even more than the previous one I critiqued, as it doesn't have the flaws the other did. I really like the improved focus on the waterdrops, and the moment is excellent, really captures the Tigers movement.

I'd have liked it even mroe if you could have gotten the tigers face, though from the perpective it looks to me as if you could only look at the tiger from the side you did[?].

Overall, loving this picture, thats the only critique I can give.
Hoping for a face-shot of a tiger, though, because that would completly top it off.
