Good DOF and color. You pushed the envelope with the lighting/highlights so that they're just on the edge of being blown out, but I think you pulled it off. Nice detail and composition too.

Awwww. . . . I just love polar bear shots. My favorite animal in the zoo. . .and our zoo mercifully doesn't even have them (too hot). This is great. It shows such detail in his fur, and he has such a great "polar bear" expression. I love it!!!

I love the expression on its face. Great techs, but it's a shame the lighting is coming from a less than optimal angle. If only we could move the sun around to our liking. Same thing happened to me. (8)
