Awesome. Panning is one of my biggest weaknesses. I always seem to use either too long or too short of a shutter speed. It's really cool looking when it's done right (as you have proven), but I just can't seem to do it right... Anyways, great job on the picture, both technically and aesthetically. Very cool.
Go Melbourne Zoo and go you for capturing such an exquisite shot.
When I first saw it I thought I was moving, like running. It was cool.
To me it looks as though the animal's world is spinning out of control and he's just sitting there watching.
God. That's amazing. Great capture of motion and interesting composition. At the zoo? THis is done so well an intimate that we get the image that you're in the jungle. I'm sure the color adjestment was a good choice. Awesome shot.
This is too cool You've captured a unique sense of danger that I've rarely seen in animal photos. I've seen anything as dangerous looking as this. Its as if he's ready to pounce on an unsuspecting victim. I gotta this!!
wow...haven't seen em tigers in ages...another reason to go to the zoo
but very nice, I really like the blurred background and body, how the head is so in focus
great colours too and a real sense of motion....
wow I can't imagine how you could have taken such a perfect photo! I don't know how photographers do it! A painter can make the composition how thy like, but it must be nearly impossible for a photographer to take a photo that is exactly as they wanted! From what my media student friends tell me about photography, I imagine that this photo must have been among 50 useless ones. That must be frustrating!
I guess this photo is a perfect example of the difference between painting and photography. Paintings recreate the world as the artist sees it, it may be grim or overly romantic, the real picture blurred by the artist's style; where as a photo is representing the world almost unchanged through it's rendering, and so stands as the best proof that beautiful things in the world really do exist!!!
Sorry for the essay! There is some amazing skill involved here. My mouth won't close AHaHaHA
Coolness!! These lazy buggers wouldn't move when i was there he he I looove the feeling of motion that you got, yet still managed to keep the head nice and clear... Funny how you can see the reflections of the people in the glass too
