What do you mean with "secret" and who are you asking? :rolleyes:

Having read a few reviews on tripods, thought I'd stick around and check out some of the other forums, which is how I came across this thread.

I happen to have a photo gallery up at our local zoo (Khao Kheow Open Zoo, Chonburi Province, Thailand) and while I love photographing birds and animals in their natural habitat, I also have a passion for photographing animals in captivity. Although captive animals are of course much easier to find, capturing a compelling image while showing no evidence of manmade elements within the frame is of course a challenge in it's own right, but one that I enjoy tremendously.

The image you see here is one of a series I captured of a beautiful Indochinese Tigress (named Busaba) back in March 2011 while she was playing about in her pool. Watching Busaba shaking herself dry a couple of times, I prepared myself in case there was another opportunity to freeze the action, and she certainly didn't disappoint!

Since taking this series I've been back to visit Busaba many times trying to recreate this particular shot, and failing to do so keeps me happily humble enough to confess that there was indeed a large element of luck involved :wink:

Predatory Gaze

Thank you Stock28 and Ions, real pleased you like The Explosion!

May as well post up another shot of Busaba that I took much more recently, this April in fact, though more of a portrait. Given that I'm so captivated by Mother Nature's abundance of rich colours, I seldom convert my images into black and white, though every now and then there's one I just have to try …... though more often than not I simply can't decide which version I like best.

If either of you, or anyone else that happens across these for that matter, would share you opinion on which version you prefer I would be very much interested to know, and thanks in advance!

Wonderful "Explosion" Ashley! The other one is good too but it sure is nice when they do something special for us.

Whenever I get within view of the white tiger exhibit Suzy abandons what she is doing and focuses on me. It is really cool that there seems to be some connection. The exhibit is quite dark and doesn't make for good images especially when she stays so close to the glass. Unfortunately this is the best shot I've been able to get of her. I know, it's pretty bad and my settings were not right for the circumstances. But I keep trying.

I'm not always a fan of black and white but this one with the tiger works for me. I still like the color version better but either one makes a great shot.

Thanks for your kind words Charles!

Wow! Those White Tigers are awesome and for the circumstances you describe (particularly the shooting through glass, which is always a royal pain!) you've managed to capture a fair shot. I've recently had a similar experience with a pair of 7-month old Siberian Tiger cubs, where no sooner did I approach the fence than they'd come right up to check me out, making it all but impossible to grab a shot.

Fortunately I had my daughter with me, so I asked her to stay where she was while I stepped back then snuck around to the other end of their enclosure. It didn't take the sisters too long to figure out where I was and curiosity compelled them to head in my direction, and that's when my shooting began!

Here's one of my favourites from that afternoon.

I too prefer the colour version, but with so few B&W's in my collection it's always nice to add another one from time to time.

All the best :)
