This is Satri, one of three Sumatran Tiger cubs at Perth zoo. He is a year old and very shy. In order to get to his dinner he had to go through a tunnel close to the glass and did not like being under observation and having his picture taken.

Well thanks everyone, this has been the first time I have ever considered the possibility that I would get a ribbon. Thanks for a new personal best anyway.

Hi from the Critique Club,

You asked for your shot to have an in depth comment from a member of the Critique Club.

Excellent shot!!!!!!!!!!!

There is not a lot to say about this shot as it is really good. A little more focus on the eyes ,,maybe, a tiny bit more saturation to bring out those oranges. Bar that excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would love to see what you could do with this shot in advanced editing!

Well done on a great shot and an excellent placement

My what huge feet she has! Great shot - she does indeed look both displeased and wee bit unsure of herself. Congrats on an outstanding score and placement, and a top ten!

Great facial expression - pity this is 'Basic Editing' as this could have been even stronger with extra pp work.

Please tell me that you were using a long lens! It is a shame that fern is there. I would have given you full marks if the eyes were 100% sharp, the focus point appears to be on the bridge of the nose.
