[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tatiana from the SF Zoo that was fataly killed on Christmas day after killing a teenager and wounding two others.

I went to The Zoo on Dec. 23rd just a couple days befor the tragedy. Tatiana was energetic and playful. It was sad to know I had just photographed her two days prior to her death. She was shot by police.

Hi Adam,
You are very fortunate to have taken this photograph, and a lovely photograph it is! Very good composition, the symmetry of the patterns is excellent - it's practically a mirror image. Very sharp and well focused with perfect amount of light. Beautiful textures you can see here. What intrigues me the most is the shadow in Tatiana's eyes; the hidden intentions of a predator. Very well done! Thanks for sharing.

Hello Adam,
WOW!! that's an excellent close up, great sharpness and detail, fabulous vivid colors.

Hola Adam.- Great Photo. nice colors and what a look of this big Tiger. Very well focus and sharpness too. I am sad about the bad news to read in Your note. Some times people take to many risk about the wild animals.

Hi Adam,
Happy New Year to you and your family!
I was devastated by the San Francisco Zoo tragedy, and I mourn the young man who lost his life, as well as the magnificent tiger.
This is a beautiful capture of Tatiana. Amazing details and fantastic light. Stunning symmetry.
Hope to see you one of these days.

Hi Adam,
Excellent closeup portrait..Well composed tight frame, slightly off-center. Very good quality image.
I followed that story in the media, tragic. She was a magnificent animal.
PS - I heard on the news last night that the young men involved were using sling shots..

Hi Adam.
A very sad story. I am very afflicted. It was really true beauty. And your portrait is simply outstanding. TFS.

Impresionante luz, colores y corte de la fotografía. Y eso en tu toma número 100.
