Mike: Beautiful and full of action! However and I think this may be the picture, it doesn't seem to have any real popping contrast. All the colors seems to fall into a similar midtone to me. I realize of course how a tigers camoflague is what makes him the predator that is condusive to his enviornment, but I think a bit more contrast would really make him 'pop' a bit more. Again alot of this may be due to the picture. Overall all though it's another great work. Also did you do your Avatar? I would LOVE to see that full size.

Psssst...you better post Snow Queen in here too, that is to die for! On a tiger kick lately? Keep 'em coming!;)
