Tiger from Miami Metro Zoo Ready to Attack

Jul 27, 2011 | Animals & Wildlife

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

Not the greatest shot in the world but I thought it was pretty cool. It’s one of those opportunities a photographer rarely gets when at the zoo! Single exposure HDR tone mapped using Photomatix Pro and final post processing done in Photoshop with the use of Topaz.
