Not an exciting shot.
Just an example of a Beautiful animal.

Hey, Fred!

These are very nice shots of the tiger. The second one is my favourite here as he just looks very comfortable and relaxed - just like a big kitty. I hope you don't mind me saying but with a little processing you could bump up the contrast and saturation a bit and give it a little more impact.

Thankyou for the tip.
I do not mind at all. These are only right out of the camera only croped.
I will try a little PP. You or one else is welcome to pp / edit my pictures

Cool. 800x600 is a little small to play with but here's my take on your image. Boosted saturation and contrast. A little unsharp mask and finally a crop to put his head around one of the thirds.

That 2nd shot is a beaut. I often go back and look at my shots of a tiger ... such a majestic and frightening animal up close!

Thanks Iguanasan. Look much better.
I tried a couple before I got mine looking better.
I noticed most of my shots need the contrast bumped up a little.
I will try setting the contrast on my E-520 to +1 or +2
for starters
