I really like this. I like the thin borders with the rounded corners. I like the use of the out of focus shot for the canvas. I like the two detail photos that expand the forest, and I love the colors and light. 10

This flows beautifully from image to image. I really like the story here. Only complaint is thaat I would have liked the two smaller images to have the same dimensions. Nonetheless a great shot.

Very natural nature scene, I like the processing of using the main image as the border...7

great image, if the bear could be most sharpness may be a shot for a very high position.

Very nice and very brave. No matter how much I truely want to take pictures of natural wildlife, I'm not brave enough to tackle taking one of a bear. A deer yes, from a tree, but not a bear!!! :)

A little over processed (over saturated and over sharpened). The bear appears a bit bristly.

The composition of the creek works well as it leads your eye from bottom left to top right. Positioning the other two pictures to make use of this might have been effective.
