This is Mara, a beautiful Amur Tiger who was one of the few animals at the Pittsburgh Zoo who didn’t seem to mind the cold. Her natural background was a fence, so I replaced it with snow and rocks from the nearby polar bear den. (Thank you Stephanie for providing the name of this Tiger)
Taken 1/23/11 at the Welcome PA photo shoot, Pittsburgh PA, USA
Single image processed in Adobe Photoshop, layered with a new background and light texture, natural foreground. Orton effect.
