I took this at the local zoo. Please help me decide, color or black & white?

I would also appreciate any CC.

I like both--B/W and color--the tiger is pushed to foreground equally well in both cases..very sharp and low noise. Perhaps I would like to see more of the head in the shot..But still as very nice capture. thanks for sharing

No question, color.


Maybe if the subject were a zebra, B+W would be better, but for an animal so identified with a color.....

Good shot! I like the color - the green and orange work well.

Thanks for the responses! I like the green + orange combination as well.

I wish I could have gotten more of the head in the frame, as RW123 mentioned...but it is the only picture I got without a fence in the way, completely in focus, and with the tiger facing the right way. I only cropped about 5% or so to shift it from dead-center.

Apparently I wasn't thinking straight when I even considered B&W. What an overwhelmingly one-sided response! Thanks, guys :)

I agree -- the colors are just so gorgeous, no need to take 'em away! Great shot. :)
