The True King Of The Jungle
Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
Taken at the Welsh Mountain Zoo in Colwyn Bay this is a single shot processed in Picasa and Photoscape.
I had a sigma 18 - 200 fitted and I set the in-camera digital zoom to 1.4 tele equivalent. This reduced the sensor area to 12 mega pixels and I set the frames to extra fine to try and compensate. The frame rate was set to continuous. The advantage of the set up was that I was more easily able to focus on the subject through the fence, I was also able to almost fill the frame with the desired composition and, after many years of yearning, I have finally got the sort of big cat shots that I've always wanted!!
Of course I should probably buy a bigger faster lens for this type of stuff but for the number of times I would use it it is hard to justify.
Thank you for visiting and I hope that you enjoy the work
