Love the low angle of view. Can see many differing crop ideas from this, all as effective as each other.
Make your life spectacular!

That splash adds a lot, giving more of a sense of motion and action. Very nice.

Hi Adrindam, the low POV works, but I feel being a fraction higher would have been better. A - the FG would be less and B, you would be at eye level more with the subject, however that is in an 'ideal world' :) . You could have pushed the the ISO a fraction more so the SS was 1/500, better and the BKG still OOF as you were shooting with the 500 which, in it's nature compresses the BKG, but it looks like either too much Blur or NR applied, it doesn't look natural to me. The splash is a nice touch. 

IS should be on position 1 not two if I'm reading the techs correctly.

Always good to see Tigers.

Hello Steve,
Thanks a lot for all these points. It really made me thinking differently.
Completely agree with your suggestion. Processed in a new way and uploaded in website. 
IS mode was 1 only ( It is 500 F4 IS2 lens model). 
Always grateful to this knowledgable forum. Thanks again :) 

Best Regards,
Arindam.

I like your low angle of view, putting the tiger in the power position so befitting these magnificent animals! Catching the tiger in mid stride with that raised forepaw and the flying water gives a lovely sense of movement, and that stare is beautifully captured. The only thing I would suggest is taking a strip off the left side of the frame, just enough to cut off that pale coloured sapling, and let the viewer concentrate on your main subject. A fine image of this beautiful animal, Arindam, and I also enjoyed your blog with some excellent photographs from your trip to Kanha.

Carol.
