I posted this on the Post your tiger shots without any feedback. My 10 year old daughter loves this (she is doing a project on tigers, hence the shot) and I want to get it right before I give her the final version (that all her school mates will see).

I have specifically done a tight crop to show the beauty of the tiger's face. Since we know it is a tiger, I do not believe we need to keep all references (other tiger parts) in it. For instance, I have not included the ears.

So C&C on

#1 - the crop. Have I made a good judgement
#2 - PP. I have done very little expect for a little move in exposure in LR2, remove the blue tone caused by shooting through glass and exported to JPG with LR2 sharpen option checked.

Well done!
The nose looks more infocus then the eyes, but other then that. It's a beautiful photo to begin with and the crop is just amazing. Great job!

Looks great. I would take a little off the top to balance the space between the edge and his eyes, and the edge and his mouth. But that's just me being OCD.

WOW that's a great crop but maybe too tight. I'd like to see just a little more of it's face; but --wow anyway.

WOW - good shot....agree with Qbx...seems a shame to crop so much.
How about including the whole head with some of the background....rotated CC to line up the eyes.

"My 10 year old daughter loves this (she is doing a project on tigers"......let your daughter decide which one.

I like it, but I feel it is slightly crooked. I think you can improve by straightening it a bit.

that's great ... perhaps a bit more saturation?

Maybe like this (overal changes: sharpening, more contrast, more shadows, more saturation, then more sharpening on eyes) :

I think if you brighten the eyes in that edit it would look better.

Like the shot but I feel it is a little too much cropping.

When I first saw the original crop that's exactly what I thought, then BOOM! you went and did it! :D
