Post Challenge

Thank you to everyone for the great comments and votes. I'm delighted that I've hit a PB in position, score, and achieved my first ribbon.
And a big thank you to my wife who stood for ages holding a table lamp with a cone of paper round the end to provide the lighting : )


p.s. no bears were harmed in the making of this picture . . .

Congrats on your first ribbon! I love the mood created by the wonderful lighting. It is good to see a low key photo score so well here and it is a tribute to how well you composed and lit the shot.

lol - what a fascinating wardrobe you must have : )

This item isn't as exciting as that , it is simply a leather handbag, and no, it isn't Mr Bean's teddy - in fact this same teddy can be seen in this picture in much more comfortable surroundings. The bears nearly a professional : )

Just right. Teddy's posture and all the brown tones in his accessories. (But what is that black item under his left arm - a gladiator brassiere? And this isn't Mr. Bean's poor Teddy?).
