These beautiful, curious creatures, will soon be gone.
I am so glad that I got to see them in their natural habitat before they are gone.

Love the grain in this image. I think it helps with the message.

A disappointingly under-appreciated photograph.

This was one of the best shots in the challenge. I can't believe it scored this low. The grain is what makes it and creates the mood. Nice job.

very grainy, but good capture of the bear

Oh my goodness, what an outstanding natural history photograph. The composition combines with the perfect pose of the Polar Bear. The mono conversion is an interesting choice, and in some intangible way adds weight to your title.

great shot, but unfortunately too noisy

title really hurts this fine capture

nicely done. Ice is hard. There might be a bit too much grain, but I like it.
The bear's face is terrific.

Would have added less noise. Bit distracting.

The grain in the photo really adds to the environment for me in this one. Nicely composed and shot. 9.

Title is too political, I think that may harm you in the voting. Not a fan of the grainy image, but I like the bear

The capture is wonderful, but the grain doesn't add for me.
