taken handheld at the melbourne zoo
without zoom lol
i was actually this close to the tiger!
but there was a glass wall seperating me of course!
the motion blur is real not photoshopped
i've had practise taking panning shots with cars
but this was actually quite a challenge
took me 10 shots to get it right

Very nice picture. I can easily believe that the motion blur was not easy ! The effect is a success. Nice colors too.

You have to love a zoo that maintains such clean glass! I like your photo hann, and appreciate how difficult panning can be to get right. Luckily you're shooting digital and not film ;) I just wonder if it would benefit from a slight crop at the top. Would post a WS but out for today.

Kazoooooom !! Dear Hann, perfect picture !! Wonderful motion with a great great focus on the head. Only minus I see is the centered position of the tigers head, but that is just a small minus. Very good work. Yours, Jan

No comment !
Superbe photo. Les couleurs sont très nettes. On le croirait dans son élément naturel.

Perfect picture of a powerful and beautiful creature.
Very, very well done!

Great shot. Composition is very good and the motion blur really gives dynamic to your very dynamic subject. Colors are also very good. Thanks for sharing this beautiful photo.

RRooaarr !! C'est très bien fait ! Le tigre est superbement bien photographié. Et j'imagine que cela n'a pas du être très facile de le prendre ainsi.

Excellent shot en vitesse lente qui imprime un superbe mouvement à l'image. La faible profondeur de champs réalise là un étonnant caléïdoscope de couleurs. Bravo, ç'est très réussi.

Beautiful movement for a beautiful creature. A very good technical choice. Bravo.
