The studies of tigers against the black background give a nice impression of depth to the image. Nice use of colour.

thankyou very much, if you saw the large original you can see the mark making, when it is a photo of the painting and then reduced to this size it does look photographic. :icontigerplz::heart:

thanks for your great comment. These were the most relaxed tigers I have seen, behind glass with all these people checking them out. Quite an amazing Zoo in Thailand, the tiger cubs are reared by pigs, and they have full grown tigers in the same enclosures as pigs. I wish they could get humans to get on like that. They also have crocodiles in enclosures with ducks and geese, its truly unbelievable. I also got to bottle feed a tiger cub, an experience I will never forget.:icontigerplz: :heart:

I thought I replied to this...I wish I could have been there..that is so cool about the pigs. Very interesting. I wish humans could get along like this too..it would really be unbelievable. I had the pleasure of bottle feeding baby lions once..it was so neat. I'll never forget it either!
