[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at Marwell Zoo last week, when a few friends got together for a photography day out which ended being cold, wet and miserable.
This beautifull animal looked very miserable as it walked up and down in the wet, for me this shot was my first large animal capture and i feel sorry for the animal as they should not be kept in a zoo but back in its natural enviroment, they just dont look happy enough for me.

Hello Michael,
Excellent job under poor lighting conditions.
Very good sharpness, POV, exposure and use of F4.5
Well composed with a wonderful expression captured. Perfect title, it describes the weather here in Texas at the moment.
Very well done.

Hi Mike
You really managed to show the cold and wet conditions well through this tiger. He was literally frozen up by the look of things as with the 1/45 shutter speed there is no movement what so ever.
Your composition & POV is well done. Great colours and the exposure was very well handled. Good DOF & BG.
Good work and TFS.
PS. I also like Howard's (marhowie) workshop. It enhanced your brilliant photo even more.

Hello Mike, was the title pertaining to you or the tiger? It looks like nasty weather. Nice shot of this wet tiger though. He doesn't look too happy! Well done.
