Thanks for all the votes and comments!

It's truly an honor to have done so well in this challenge and to have earned the elusive Paw! I've only been able to admire the Bear Paw from afar and never thought I would actually be able to display one in my profile.

Congrats Robert on reaching the century mark and thank you for all you do for this community. You are the DPC Sage!

This is an outtake that I wavered on entering. I thought I might enter it in FS but ended up going with something else for that.

Hrmmm... Bears, as a rule, don't care for tunnel skiffs, but maybe they haven't heard that yet in Hawaii? Lovely combo of harsh and soft: you could cut a tooth on this one, then pillow the ache.


Patience is a virtue oft-rewarded, and as I reach the end of my revising I see this dreamy scene, a sort of Bear-nirvana as it were, and think "What this scene needs is a Bronze Bear Paw, and so I make it so:

Lovely processing. Interesting scene with unusual light.

I have been in dreamy coves with Bear, and the glow you used really brings out the other-worldliness.

Very reminiscent of a bear photo in so many ways. A winner for sure.

The vast emptiness here reminds me of a "Bear" shot. The lone boat. Nicely shot.
Not sure how I feel about the brightness of the sky, however. I'll have to come back to this photo.
