Paid a visit to Paignton Zoo today, quite lucky with the weather so got to make use of the Bigma, I found this big stripey pussycat wandering around so I decided to straddle him and when he looked up I snapped his cute face.....honest, check the exif if you dont believe me, K10D and my DA50-135 at 50mm

Blimey, what was between you and him to keep him safe? He looks quite interested...

Are the levels all they could be? Seems a bit flat. (Probably my monitor, it's an early Baird.)

You've caught a fantastic expression on the tiger's face Alan. I agree with Gareth, give it a crop and tweak in levels or contrast or something when you get home to the PC and this picture will have real bite.

Well I got this onto the PC tonight and have to admit it definately needed a bit of a tweak to the levels, still it wasn't too bad for a laptop edit

Heres the tweak;




Plus another from the day;

but does the first one still look like there is a colour cast to it

A slight green tinge??? I thought it was my eyes

It might be caused by the glass, must make a not not the tweak images when I'm tired

I prefer the 2nd one, but the first one is also great shot
