Nice shot. Curious how long you had to wait to snap this one.

6 - Good capture. Wonder, if the quality was there, if a much tighter crop, allowing the 'attacker' to dominate more, yet still showing the submission (seemingly) of the 'attackee', may have made this even better. Apologies in advance if wrong (and could be just motion blur) but looks like some dodge/hallowing areas visible in places.

Nice capture. There appears to be some "haloing" around the cat on the right. I like the darkened background.

if all of each tiger were included this would be an incredibly great image. it does remain a great image as it is though.-7-, 9 to 10 is legs of tigers weren't cropped off.

Explosive action shot. I love the angle and the timing of this photo. Would love to see the whole series of outtakes.

grrrr! what an amazing, sharp image! pity the crop along the bottom chops off the feet a little, if they were in there, I would have given this a 10, but 8 this time

Dramatic - not sure I would survive in such circumstance. Pure power on display.

Very nice capture. Lighting on the tigers is awesome. did you burn the BG in to add emphasis? It looks like there is a slight halo effect around the tigers. Not sure I don't like it, though.
