Love the picture, nice focus on the face, very detailed. Keep up the good work. PS: love the fancy border too, got to learn how to do that ;)

What a perfect b/w subject! I like the composition of it - nice use of space, and a very clean image with no distractions. Great work!

White object looks too gray, but there's nice detail in the fur.

If you filled the picture with the bear, you whould have made him into negative space, this way with the upper right corner the way it is, that is the negative space, and there is too much bear.

The focus is on his/her nose. It's a nice nose. Lots of texture. Good subject.

Not enough negative space. Perhaps filling the frame with bear? Then bear becomes negative space and everybody's happy! ;-) Nice shot of the bear, he's kind of contemplative.

AMAZING! Really fuzzy, really soft look. Nice nose and good tonal range and framing. Very good. WOULDN'T CHANGE A DAMN THING. Screw anyone who says other wise. TEN! 10. Anyone who thinks badly of this photo is just jealous and insecure about their own photographic abilities.
