|you guessed right ... we do not have Tigers in our streets of forests here in the African continent, but when I see one ... no matter where, my camera have to be in my hands :)...and for good reason, ...the Tiger is arguably one of the most gorgeous animal in the kingdom of the cats.|
Siberian tigers are massive carnivores living in the earth's coldest areas. Siberian tiger or Amur, the world's largest cat, is amongst the most endangered species. Nowadays, these magnificent animals are mostly found in southeastern Russia. Their number in China and Korea has reduced a lot because of illegal poaching. It is estimated that around 350 - 400 tigers are left in the wild and 490 are there in zoos.

Magnificent portrait of this very expressive Siberian Tiger. Love the chosen composition and the ideal point of view. How beautiful the golden eyes. Yes, these animals are among the most beuatiful creatures.
excellent portrait. Very interesting atmosphere. A lot of details. Perfect composition.
Thanks for sharing,
Beautiful portrait of the Tiger with the expression
on his face and eyes, love the joy on his eyes, TFS
On this one I don't think the partial desaturation worked. It give the tiger two different colored eyes and the complete black and white right side of the photo brings a kind of unbalance to the photo. I think the latter is also caused by the added blur on both sides.
