I asked a tiger expert, my seven year old. She liked number 3 and 6 because they are beautiful.
I liked number 3 and 5.

Great shots

A more interesting question is "how do you get a tiger to sign a model release?"

I favor the first image while image four runs a very close runner up.

500,003. Rats!

Wait. If I go back and delete a bunch of my previous posts, that would make me a winner.
Right admins?

I prefer image #1. It seems more regal.

nr 1 and nr 4 is most natural
Nr 6 just looks to much like my cat when I open a new can of catfood

I really like the colors in 4 and 5, but I like the pose in #6 the best.

#6 is IMO the most interesting pose, because the ears are back. WHen my cat does this he is really mad.

other poses are classical "majestic" poses and don;t show enough of the cats character again IMO.

Thank you for all the responses and encouragement and the criticisms, I really appreciate it.

My picks were 1>6>4>3=2>5 but then my wife who is a real tiger lover said she liked #5 the most, so I got I thought I'd ask. I guess most of the poses are somewhat average so people differ in their opinion of which is their favorite. If there is an unusual shot or something mesmerizing that would fetch a more consistent result.

I am at the final stages of shooting just portraits of the animal faces in zoos and similar controlled environment. I have done a lot of this but have reached a plateau. For my next step, I will have to venture into the wild (not for tigers ) to get some real actions shots of animals, with their surroundings to get more of the wild feel.

I like number 5 best, followed by number 2. Both images feature the cat more prominently, with less distracting backgrounds visible. Both could use a tiny bit of touchup to remove small imperfections, but nothing to really worry about. After those two, the rest of the images are a toss up (can't decide on a third place).
