Ross Hatch, "Shake It Off." Best In Show; First Place Novice - Nature. Judges Comments: Fabulous moment. Very strong lighting and composition, dark background. Strong sense of action. "I have taken animal pictures all over the world, but 'Shake It Off,' taken in the wilds of the Houston, TX zoo is my favorite. I had gotten some great shots of the tiger swimming in his pool. Then he stepped out of the water and the picture fell into place." Canon T-90 SLR probably with 400 speed film and a 100-300 lens.
