This is a shot of a Sumatran tiger from the Toronto Zoo.

Last night I learned of a new sharpening technique in the forums. I was first alerted to it by reading the description of ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' mpeters's photo Princess, where he described the Adamus sharpening tip. I did a search of the forums and found a posting by ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jdannels that included this link:
Adamus Sharpining tip.

I reallly liked the results, and will be playing with it many times over.

I really like what you've done with this; great job of bring out the detail and making the tiger seem more deadly. My only nitpick is the vertical black band on the left, it just seems to draw a bit of attention.

Seriously sharp for sure! The high contrast really works, too.

I like the crop and the colors. I also like the sharpening effect here but I think the tiger is a little over-sharpened (just a tad). Definitely an interesting technique and a great example of it use.

Very good job with the crop and the light touch with processing. And yes, isn't that sharpening trick wonderful??
