Got this shot at work, it was kind of funny because I went to the 2nd floor window to shoot because construction was being done at my office and workers were throwing down stuff from the roof. I thought, hey why not take a picture and as I took the first one I looked down and what do you know I saw the above Polar Bear staring right at me. I went crazy shooting this Polar Bear before the workers actually threw something onto my challenge entry. ;-) How was this formed, it snowed and got warm and the trees above must have had melted snow drip down onto the driveway and since the driveway is slanted the water runoff formed the design and more snow covered it up a bit. Cool. Right after that we got about 20cm/7.8in of snow and ice on top from the freezing rain! I might have cropped this two much but what can you do, we'll see how people like it. I like this because you can see the nose, eye, mouth, ears, and the upper body with the paw.

"To me it looks like the Polar Bear is waiting at the tip of a Iceberg waiting for his next meal"

PS: Rotate, Auto Contrast, Auto Color, Auto Levels, Curves, Burn & Dodge and Cloned (in the upper left corner a reflection from the office light, since this was taken from an office building).

Okay, I see it now. He doesn't look too angry to me. It also looks a little like Scooby Doo.

I do see it. But seems very soft to me.

Was this found or made? I like it either way. It seems a little blurry, though.

I think your image is going to take a beating because of the size and blurryness. a slightly smaller size would have me the image stand out more for ppl that have smaller monitors. Well done and great shot. <8>

Nice find. Its a little soft and grainy for me. I might have also gone with a horzontal crop.
