View Full Version : Extreme wildlife pictures
08-18-2003, 08:26 PM
Its the first time ive posted my own efforts here in the photography area...so heres some to keep u happy.
I have more but i dont want to post them, im greedy. The three below were taken by myself using a 3.3Mpixel on normal mode (about 1.3 million effective pixels)
Below is a persian tiger which would have eaten me if i got any closer:
Below is some zebra and in the distant background there are some deer:
Below is a lucky shot of a small robin which was hiding in the bushes - i cant believe how close i got without it flying away...by the way, i got all my arm getting to it in the bush:
All three are JPEG, 8 quality and i would appreciate if u looked at them only and DO NOT use for any manipulations unless i am contacted first and give you permission!

I hope to get out more to interesting places with many species of animal. I love photography but designing gets more love from me.
Ill have a look through the many Gigabytes of data on my PC and try to find more pictures to post

The zebra shot i quite pixelated... but the rest looks really good! Nice tiger! Keep it going!

The zebra shot would have been good
My camera has no flash i hate to say so it needs a decent light for a good picture...so i think the lack of light and the 8quality JPEG makes it look pixelated...the original is of slightly better quality
So i take it the tiger is going to be every1's fave? personally i like it best too

do you have any shots of my all-time favorite animal the penguine ?
Please show us some, if you do.

I did actually get some but it was stored in my cameras internal memory since my compact flash card was full. Unfortunately the batteries lost all their power and the internal memory pictures were lost...i think i may have one or two somwhere from about 8months ago...ill have a small look later but i aint guaranteeing a thing
:(i lost the macaroni penguin pictures too:(

i was almost sure you'd have at least one.
penguins make me happy.
gotta go googling to see those birdly creatures.

Who needs flash in daylight? ;)

I agree but remember, its only in 8quality to conserve bandwidth - its just to let u see what they were like and what i can do
Hey Viika, its a suggestion but could take a while - why not try and create a penguin using Photoshop and/or any other graphics program you have
Trax, once i get some money by i am hoping to buy a new PC and one of the Sony CyberShots (the 5MP one ;))...PC is the number one priority though
Thanks for comments folks

:) I like the wild cat, wouldn't call it a tiger tho:)
You are very lucky if you are going for a 5mp right now.
Minolta comes up with an awesom A1, Sony brings his 8mp bridge cam and Canon offers a real reflex for 1200 euros (cam+1 lens).
I guess that Nikon won't leave those monsters alone for long :D

The composition is very good in all these, but as in your other post, you just need to punch up the colors a little. It's not the 8 quality that's hurting these, it's the color.Learn how to use it, and curves will be your new best friend.

Great job on the pics. How nervous or scared where you getting up close to the Wildcat or the other animals while trying to take these pictures?
08-21-2003, 02:06 PM
Wasnt scared at all...
Robin: its a robin, whats it gonna do? :lol
Zebra: On top of a platform about 15 foot above them
Persian tiger: Stuck behind 3inches of glass
