Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved


This is an easy one.  I recently got some new photo editing software that I’m experimenting with.  My resolution is that I learn what the heck to do with all that capability in order to make better, and more artistic photos.  I took this photo this morning at the San Diego Zoo – unfortunately the Tiger was pretty much always in the shade and/or against the chain-link fence.  So I decided to take advantage of the dark shadows while adding a vignette in post processing to highlight the subject and eliminate the fence.  This is the result…..(This is also meant as a teaser for the coming year – we’re off to India at the end of the month to see if we can catch an image or two of these guys in the wild!)

    • Thanks Heidi! Even though I spend a lot of time looking for animals in the wild, it’s still a great place to visit!

  6. Your post processing choices really work to enhance this image, Scott. My eye was drawn into the frame, firstly to the face and eyes, the stripes and then the gentle haze of chain link that served to accentuate this handsome creature … in captivity.
