A tad sharp but majestic animals like this always merit the extra point, and you definitely stopped some motion.

Nice effect with the water swirling. Lighting is a little harsh.

I love the circular lines formed around the bears neck with the water spray. Big points on the cool factor there. I'm thinking either your distance to the subject was too close and the focal point off just a smidgen, or your aperture was too shallow, as the forefront water is nice and crisp but the bear and some back spray shows some blur (either DOF or motion). JMO of course. Good luck in the challenge.

This is probably just my eye, but the water seems a little oversaturated and fake feeling. Other than that, though, very nice image.

Returning for comment and a bump up.
Great capture, timing, subject, comp. I think that covers everything. ;) Looks like a ribbon for you. Good luck.

Oh YEAH!!! This is my instant favorite so far! I love how the water is in a perfect circle around his head -- and the look on his face. He looks to be in total bliss! I definitely need another polar bear in my favorites, and this is a perfect addition :)

Amazing and difficult shot, not only because of the stopped motion but because of the subject - you really must have patience to get something like this. And of course the water forming rings around the head ... just beautiful to look at!
