Wow I can't believe people rated this so low. I thought it not only met the challenge but was a beautiful shot.

This is a great picture.
I wonder what the other 215 people were thinking...

Most rocks are pretty boring to look at, you`ve got around that problem very well :) 9

Beautiful shot!..I love how the background is the rock and the object is in the center of the rocks.

A great shot but it could be a bit more 'edgy' with some more editing. For example, I think this could benefit with darker levels and a slight increase in contrast. It just seems too much like a normal zoo snapshot.

love the tiger, not sure it covers the challenge well enough (yes I know it's got rocks in)

great pic of a tiger but main subject not met. Concrete stones just don't make it. Good score for Tiger

Two problems 1) the rock is a background or minor element. It could be cloned out and the photo would be essentially the same. 2) the rock is not rock, it's some wierd manmade thing that vaguely resembles rock. so this is a photo which contains as a minor element a material designed to fool us into thinking it is rock. If you've read this you have suffered the full measure of my punishment for not meeting the challenge. It's a nice photo of a tiger. That's not a paper tiger, is it?

Very nice picture of the tiger, but the rocks are lost in the background

Nice capture, the lighting and focus are great. I really hope people don't misinterpret the challenge and mark you down for "not" meeting it.

Really cool picture, I like this, but is does not fit the challenge.:(

A very nice shot of a tiger, I would have rated this high in "wildlife" or something similar but what has this shot got to do with the theme of rock paper scissors. I know according to the challenge specifications you only need to have one of those items in the shot but here the rock is in such a minor role that IMHO this shot is totally off topic. Please PM with me if you dissagree but I felt that you were entitled to an explanation as to why I am only giving this a 4. I would probably have given this 7-8 if this had been on topic.

Nice picture of the tiger, my low vote is for category...there are rocks, but not the theme of the picture...

Nice way to enhance rocks!!! This is beautiful!

Very nice picture, but the main focus of it is not the rock but the tiger ...

What a great shot! I really don't care about the theme! Nice comp and Dof. His hind leg seems a tad overexposed.
