re: Hanging with Mike VI

When I say "cropped", I mean cropped out of the original frame, not post processing. Try putting the top right corner right above his shoulder blades and leave his face in the right side of the frame.

Yeah, I think that's more of a stronger image. May get just a little light behind his left front leg

Compare

I think its hilarious that the animal rights groups get all up in arms about us having a live tiger

I like it. thanks

wish I had a little more room to play with to the left. Or if I had gotten more of his rear/tail.

The cropped version makes it look more intentional, not a missed shot. Back the crop out just a hair so you have a little rock above his shoulders and water behind his left leg. Not too much, just to show a little depth.

I've tried to shoot Mike a couple times. He is hard to get and you did capture him nicely.

The picture of him on the log. Try cropping it to get him out of center frame. Put your right side of the image about where the green slime (or what ever it is) located behind his butt. It will move him to the right. Try not to mess with left side too much.

Bring bottom right corner in, moving him to the right

(I can do this all day).

I'm no expert on tigers, but why does he appear so white in the first photo???

Tigers are not orange on their bellies, only on their backs.

I'm calling BS! Everytime I go, he's always sleeping in the corner closest to the gift shop.



J/k! Nice pics! I wish once he'd be that active when we go so my son can see that he actually moves!

re: Hanging with Mike VI
I don't understand how people aren't fascinated by him. When I walk by him for class I usually look to see if I can find him and sometimes I go watch him. Most people never even see a tiger and I get to see one every day. I love it

Awesome pics, thanks for sharing
