Catwalk – black & white fine art portrait of an approaching tigress from Ranthambore National Park, India.
Some time back I had a lucky tiger encounter in Ranthambore National Park, Rajasthan. My vehicle was the only one in front of this tigress as she walked towards us, so I could keep on reversing and shoot her as she kept advancing.
“It was a cold February morning, and the light was still soft and warm as I headed back after a fruitful morning safari, after encountering a tigress and her three-month old cub. Suddenly we saw that a canter had stopped in the middle of the road. When we asked the driver, he and a few tourists said that a tiger had been walking in the nalla (which was 20 feet below the road) some 10-15 minutes earlier. I was skeptical, given that it was past 9 am, but asked the driver to go forward for 100 metres and stop. Imagine my surprise when I saw the canter folks getting excited (they were higher up, so could see what was happening in that dry nalla), and then after a few seconds, a tigress parting the undergrowth, marking her territory on a tree, and coming on the road between the canter and our vehicle.”

I prefer the black and white version, since the fine art print (https://www.etsy.com/in-en/listing/1277434872/catwalk-black-white-portrait-of-an) has a nice contrast when printed large with a white frame.
However, framing is a personal choice, and it depends on the room too!
