Lovely warm light and I love the low-down angle. Really works for me. 9 - floyd

Horrible waste of space all around the bear.

The lighting is a bit orange for my taste. Is there a white balance setting on your camera? He does look cuddly!

probably need to adjust your white balance. nice angle.

Cute. It would be better with a backround that makes the bear stand out though.

I hope your bear is doing better than mine. I dont think people like bears. LOL Personally, I love it. The angle on yours is great. He looks so soft. Like he's one of the overyly soft, kind of oily feeling ones. The lighting is good, I think i would have liked to have seen the lighting spread out evenly over the bear. His head seems a slight bit darker than his feet, like the light source was coming from the front, like a flash. If you were trying to get him perfectly centered, he needs to scoot a tad bit to the left. (his right) Otherwise, a very well executed photo. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

I like this except that the shadows on the bear are a little dark. 6.

great DOF..very sharp and I like the coloring

You should really have taken this from a higher angle, so we could see teddy's eyes. Also it would have looked better with a contrasting colour for the background.

I would have preferred more of a difference in color among the foreground, the background, and the bear.

interesting shot! I like the bear... my only comment is the overall yellow glow... I don't know if this was intentional or not, but if your camera has white balance settings, they may have been useful on this photo to correct the color... :) - jmsetzler

I like the angle of this shot. The backdrop and overall "yellow" didn't compliment your excellent shot.

Love the lighting !!
08/26/2002 01:46:00 PM
The hues are too orange. Good shot, though.

I love the positioning and the angle..and the lighting too. The only thing that could make this picture better, in my opinion of course, is a contrast in colours, either with the floor, or the walls. Great shot though!
