This photo was taken around noon in hot sunlight. Half of the image was worthless because of unwanted items in the scene. What can I do? Crop. Sharpen. Burnt filter. Erase red filter effect from tiger. Lighten and Darken filter (2x) to give a night effect. Buzz. Flood. Now, I'm ready for a caption. Any suggestions?

Very creative image, Stephen! I have a suggestion on the caption:

The tiger ponders profoundly, "Who is this Tony character, and why do they keep calling me that?" #5663577
