Talking Inner City Tiger

So - I haven't really posted anything of note on this site - but have learnt quite a fair bit. Here are some of my shots from a recent "safari" in Melbourne's Zoo - which is right in the city.

Shots are of a 3 year old Sumatran Tiger, which are endangered and virtually extinct in the wild.

Taken on an e-30, with either the 12-60 or 50-200 lenses.

It was a really cloudy day - as you get with our lovely weather in Melbourne, and I had to push up my ISO to 1000 to get this fast moving beast in focus.

Re: Inner City Tiger

Very nice images. especially no2 and no3 .
Pity that no2 is lacking sharpness when enlarged. What size enlargement are we talking about here?

Re: Inner City Tiger

Very good shots look natural, the enclosure must have been well thought out pity you did not get the sharpness you wanted on No. 2.

Re: Inner City Tiger

These are lovely shots and I like that there is no hint that the animal is in a zoo. I suspect a lot of thought went into your composition of these.

Re: Inner City Tiger

Nice set focused on the head, but narrow depth of field.
