"This photograph of a Siberian tiger emerging at pace from a deciduous forest has an intoxicating level of energy. As soon as I looked at that the image on the LCD , we packed up and returned to our base – I simply knew that I could do no better, the composition is close to perfect – in particular the inside detail on his right hand paw. This is a literal picture – there is no ambiguity and no need for interpretation and this clarity serves to make an engagement with the work very simple. It was a good piece of camerawork and the result is a cracking image of a most beautiful, but gravely endangered animal."

2018 When we released this powerful image on social media, we were asked what sort of lens magnification was used. Many camera enthusiasts thought that given the dangerous subject matter, it must have been a 400m telephoto lens or more, but this sort of distance compression would have taken the power away from the portrait. This photograph was actually taken with a 105m lens and the benefits are immediately clear. We were that close. -David Yarrow
