This is a beautiful representation of a Tiger, as they are rare now in the world, pictures of them are praised by many.
Vision: Making the Tiger look right at the camera definitely made this picture one to remember. Great detail in the fur/face, the figure of importance in the picture (being the Tiger), was captured perfect by the background being blurred out.
Originality: This picture shows the beauty and strength of Tigers as large cats/predators. It also shows how Tigers prefer to be independent rather than in a group like other big cats do. The only thing that would've made this photograph even more original, was if it was taken of the Tiger in the wild.
Technique: Again great position with the camera, it's aligned perfectly with the Tiger's position in the picture.
Impact: The photo easily shows the power and beauty from an animal like this. With the Tigers' numbers declining, one can only imagine what these big cats are really like in the wild. Showing the tiger by itself also could indicate how rare they are starting to become due to poaching, illegal skinning, and other black-market uses for their bodies.
To conclude, this photo tells an unforgettable story of how beautiful and important Tigers are to the world, and how incredibly rare they are to find in the wild today.
