This photo was taken at the Safari Park Open Zoo in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. The photo was actually taken by a friend and edited by me.
He managed to catch the tiger in a pretty interesting (or scary) moment as you can see below. I personally love tigers and think they are magnificent animals and getting the chance to be so close to one is pretty awesome (and yes, the tiger was drugged and sedated).
I decided to go with black and white and only leave the tiger in color as I thought it makes the photo more dramatic and puts the focus where it should be, on the tiger at that great moment where it seems it just woke up.
