Challenge: Promote Your Zoo (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D3
Lens: Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM for Nikon
Location: Singapore zoological Gardens
Date: Jun 6, 2009
Aperture: F22
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1/320s
Galleries: Nature, Animals
Date Uploaded: Jun 6, 2009

Captured during the token feeding session of the white tigers.
The tiger leapt out of the water to catch chunks of chicken meat thrown by the keepers. Really cool sight.

Actually made a mistake with the shutter speed. I thought I had dialed in at least 1/500s. Anyway the motion blur from 1/320s looks great and adds to the movement & power in the shot.

Great shot (look at the muscles on that cat!!). Not a big fan of that font (might have used something different for at least one line of the text) but the wording is perfect for the image, so overall, really well done.

Ooo I know that tiger. I don't think there's many white tigers in zoos that swim a lot. Gorgeous animal and a nice action shot.

At last an active shot - makes the idea of going to the zoo much more interesting than all the pictures of animals lying around doing nothing!
