When I took the photo in our local zoo I thought who sad this whole situation is for this tiger. It seemed to me that this tiger has become crazy after years of living in a cage as he was walking always the same way around in his cage :-(

What a gorgeous beast. I love the photo and the bars do add a sort of sad story to the animals portrait. Just a hint on making the bars less noticeable is to use a more open aperture and if possible get closer to the bars to increase the effect. Another thought might be to cut a hole in the fence - take your shot then run like crazy as the tiger finds his freedom... :rofl:

Thanks for the tip, Charles
I´ll keep it mind next time I visit this tiger :rofl: I wonder if you tried it before to cut a hole in the fence?
It sounds like you have experiences with such difficult cases :thumbsup:
Anyway, I´ll think about your tips as I go to bed now. Here in Germany it´s nearly midnight!
All the best to you, take care and many greetings

I´ll be online very soon ;-)

I'll bet you could remove the bars in ten minutes, if you have CS5 and use the content aware. Nice photo anyway......;)

Why so serious?

Such a beautiful creature, I love these big cats. Several years ago I was able to hold a 2 week old Siberian Tiger for a few minutes....OMG, what an experience THAT was! (I've got pictures too) This is a beautiful shot Helge, thank you for sharing. :)

A low f-stop and close to the fence would have taken the bars out of the shot. If he treads the same path every day, I would go back and take the shot again because you'll be happier with a proud Tiger prowling than a sad Tiger caged.

Content aware fill in Photoshop would also take them out, but as my mentor is always saying GIRFT which stands for 'Get it Right First Time' and you'll enjoy your shooting more.

Thank you for your comments. :thumbsup:

@ Mark (Towcestermark)
:agree: your mentor is absolutly right with "GIRFT"
After I saw this photo for the first time I thought about making this bars disappear. But I am not very experienced with PhotoShop and the bars don´t bother me now as ,in my opinion, this photo has a story to tell about the caged biest being a beauty at the same time.

If that's the look that you were after, then it's a great shot.
