  2. Nice cats. The colour shots have a slight green cast on my monitor. Not sure if intended.

    Yes they do have a colour cast..:frown:Best I could get them though..the cast is due to shooting through a blue tinted glass they have in the viewing area..its also filthy and covered in scratches so not the easiest of shoots..lol:wink:
     
  4. nicely done, particularly after reading your response above on the viewing conditions.

    Cheers Dave..yep the conditions were poor to say the least but done all I could..at least they stayed still!..lol:biggrin:
     
  6. Very nice shots. That first one is wonderful.
     
  7. I see, I know that type (and condition) of glass. Usually I try to find something grey in the scene to WB the image. Sometimes it works well, sometimes I also find it hard to WB such images correctly.

    I like the first one, too. Seems to tell a story ... is he bored or reflective? Wishing he was back on the savannah or perhaps in the female pen for a while.
    Nice work!

    #2 for me, captures the dignity in such a strong predator. Great image.
