Let me just say that I love tigers, and no picture that you have ever taken has been bad:3

She does look a bit fuzzy, but that could just be the fur :3

I love how you had the timing perfect. She looks graceful as she jumps from the log, her look is even calm. Your camera did a good job with the lighting and I love how you got the full body, and not just half.

Where you took it looks beautiful. The wooded area looks perfect for her, you did a very good job on this.


I hope my critique is good. God Bless!!

Maybe what you feel is off is that that pose doesn't look that dynamic, it looks a bit like he's glued and standing like that. But maybe that's just me. That doesn't change that the picture is great though :)

Peut-être le fait que ses pattes avants soient à peine flou à cause du mouvement, comparé au reste de la photo ça peut avoir tendance à attirer l'oeil à l'écart des principaux points focaux. Sinon le reste est parfait, bien cadré et belle prise, la photo reste très intéressante et agréable à regarder :)

En effet, et ce flou me dérange beaucoup en fait ! Je crois aussi que les couleurs m'agacent les yeux... peut être trop de jaune ? ^^'

Mais bon, merci beaucoup quand même ! :)
