[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken some time ago, the same day than my post of the lion, in “Parque El Pinar”, Caracas, Venezuela.

Handheld with IS, UV filter, direct contact, about noon, brilliant sun and no clouds.
Crop, sharpen (as much as I could), and resized.

Panthera tigris

Tigers are the largest and heaviest cats found in the wild. Although different subspecies of tiger have different characteristics, in general male tigers weigh between 200 and 320 kg (440 lb and 700 lb) and females between 120 and 181 kg (265 lb and 400 lb). At an average, males are between 2.6 and 3.3 metres (8 feet 6 inches to 10 feet 8 inch) in length, and females are between 2.3 and 2.75 metres (7 ft 6 in and 9 ft) in length.

Most tigers have orange coats, a fair (whitish) medial and ventral area and stripes that vary from brown or hay to pure black. The form and density of stripes differs between subspecies, but most tigers have in excess of 100 stripes. The now-extinct Javan tiger may have had far more than this. The pattern of stripes is unique to each animal, and thus could potentially be used to identify individuals, much in the same way as fingerprints are used to identify people. This is not, however, a preferred method of identification, due to the difficulty of recording the stripe pattern of a wild tiger. It seems likely that the function of stripes is camouflage, serving to hide these animals from their prey. The stripe pattern is found on a tiger's skin and if shaved, its distinctive camouflage pattern would be preserved.
Like most cats, tigers are believed to have some degree of colour vision.

The Bengal tiger lives in a wide range of habitats, including the high-altitude, cold, coniferous Himalayan forests, the steaming mangroves of the Sunderbans, the swampy reedlands, the scorched hills of the Indian peninsula, the lush wet forests of Northern India, and the arid forests of Rajasthan. Save The Tiger Fund has identified several key landscapes that are home to significant groups of Bengal tiger populations that have been identified in the recent Tiger Conservation Landscapes document. They are 1) Terai Arc Landscape at the foothills of the Himalayas in India and Nepal, 2) the Eastern Himalayan forests and tall-grasslands anchored by Bhutan, 3) Myanmar’s Hukuwang Valley, 4) the Sundarbans mangrove forest in India and Bangladesh, 4) the Tropical dry and moist forests in the Central Indian Highlands, and 5) the Western Ghats of India.

Hi Jose.
What a sweet portrait of tiger you have created. The pose of the animal and expression of its face are really amazing and full of feelings. Quality of reproduction of the hair, colours, sharpness are perfect too. I lie your POV and cropping so much. I repeat my words: superb portrait work. Bravo and best wishes.

Hi José
Very good compo and a beautiful animal portrayal but the DOF is a bit shallow, I think.
A bit puzzled about background too.
Overall well done

Lovely portrait of a calm and relaxed tiger, Jose.
The majesty and dignity of this proud cat are well captured in this brilliant close-up shot.

As your note states, India has been home to Bengal Tiger, as the name suggests. However, it is a saddening and alarming fact that the species is almost on the verge of extinction in its own homeland. Poor up-keep, poaching and depletion of habitat are some of the factors that have contributed to this sorry state of affairs.
Thanks for sharing this great picture.

great expression on the tiger good colors focus is good but DOF is a little too low since the eyes seem a little less focused than the nose. great shot!

This is another amazing animal portrait from you, my friend!

Lovely details and colors and superb contrast with the darker BG.

Hello Jose,
I just wonder what you do that all these wild animals look in a such a soft and dreaming way to you. Excellent portrait of this beautiful tiger caught in a very interesting attitude.
Best regards

Que bonita Jose Miguel. Me encanta porque has sabido captar esa mirada tan dulce y es otra forma de ver a los tigres, que normalmente siempre nos son presentados en su lado feroz y salvaje.
Hay que ver que bien se te dan los retratos y es que además en éste has conseguido que el modelo te ponga su mejor pose, parece un modelo de verdad al que le hubieras podido pedir que ladeara la cabeza, seguro que hubo un pelín de buena comunicación entre vosotros.
Y otra cosa que me chifla es que hayas sacado el fondo absolutamente negro para que no haya nada que nos distraiga la atención del objeto principal.
Hasta la próxima, un lujo ver tus fotos.

Vu comme cela on ne ditait pas qu'il peut mordre.
Bonne journée.

Bonsoir Jose Miguel
pour moi, c'est une des plus belles bestioles de la planète et une grande tristesse de connaitre la regression de cette espèce (comme tant d'autres d'ailleurs). L'attitude du félin que tu photographies est magnifique, avec son beau regard et sa tête inclinée, et un fond très sombre qui magnifie le sujet.
Mais je trouve à ce regard une soumission qui s'accorde mal avec un animal d'une telle puissance.

Hello Jose,

A beautiful shot of this beautiful animal. Wow, perfect exposure and composition. Really sharp, I love the the pose with his head and eyes looking above. Great all round

Hi Jose,
A dramatic portrait with the dark backround and tight cropping. Rich color saturation and nice sharp detail. Nice pose with beautiful eyes.

Fabulous capture - quite incredible the way the light shines through the face, great colours and detail too...
Well done....

Hello José,
eye catching portrait of great insensity.
perfect framing concentrating on the face. Showing it emerging diagonally out of the dark adds to the impression of capture in motion, and it provides a well supporting neutral background. An excellent composition obviously obtained by closely cropping a much larger image, the rather poor resolution due to close cropping not much of an issue here as liveliness and intensity have been achieved in a perfect way.
Thank you! Best regards,

Hello Jose,
a wonderful portrait of this tiger. From this POV it looks very so sweet, not like an wild animal at all. The pose you getting is very appealing. Colors, sharpness and composition are great.

Hi Jose. Superb close up of this tiger's face. It looks so content here but guess it would be dangerous when hungry. Very good note and excellent presentation. A winner, looks suitable the the cover of a wildlife book. Murray.

WOW, hi Jose i'm very impress did you take that pict just before the tiger eat somebody he seam very interest.A Great sharpness, you caught the mind of the tiger BRAVO WELL DONE 5 STARS.

Hi Jose,
of all the big cats that we have in the world,the tiger is my favorite.They are true individuals and no two have the same stripe pattern.They are also one of the 12 creatures used by the Chinese to mark or name a new year,I was born in the year of tiger myself.You are correct about the focus being on the soft side however this picture does justice to my most favorite cat.

Excellent portrait of this beautiful Tiger.
Nice pin sharp details.
The colors and sharpness are superb.
Well done.


This is the sort of picture that I woudl be really proud of if it was one of mine and woudl also be printed off and framed and on my wall. I also think my Grandmother would love it as well.

Everything is so very good about it, that I can't really comment or add anything else to the rest of the critiques already gone before me...


Hello Jose,
I think you captured the most beautiful expression that I ever see in a so great a feline. So tender and sharp, it is easy to forget that is some hundreds kgs of predator...

Great catch ! You have manged to catch an excellent expression of this great animal ! Congratulation's on this picture!

Hello Jose,

You titled this post "Tigre"... Is it because you speak french of it is because in frech and in spanish it is written the same way???

You did an excellent close-up of this nice big cat! You managed perfectly the exposition and the natural looks so natural! The black bg enhances so well the animal and I like very much its head angle!

Great job and TFS,


Hi Jose,
Great detail, color, and exposure. The dark BG works well..
The tigers lifted gaze makes the shot :)

Stunning photo. It is as if the tiger posed especially for you.
You must have been so thrilled with yourself!
Excellent close-up and good portrait. Detail of the face shows off well.
It fills the whole screen. Good work, and thanks for sharing. I think it deserves a 10 out of 10.
I enjoyed the notes.

Beautoful portrait of this tiger.

Tigers are my lifelong passion and I love every photo of every living tiger.
Beautiful shot.
