Polar bear shot at the Philadelphia zoo. What he's resting his head on is actually a piece of a huge blue ball. He had been playing and suddenly got tired. Overlay/background is digital art from one of the freebie sites.

What a cute and great moment to capture! That is one tired bear! I like that what you did with the backdrop because of course now one thinks of the Coca-cola polar bears such that the adorable meter now shoots up higher:-)

Awww... he looks sad, he could really use some coke. Very well done with the ice and clouds.

My only gripe is the butterflies penguins. I can accept the artwork factor, but the butterflies penguins just spoil the illusion IMO.

Fantastic job meshing the bear with the background; I kept looking at it to figure it out and then decided to just read your comments. Well done.

Ooooh - this is so sweet. I just love it! The blues everywhere and the title, the polar bear's look and pose. Totally awesome.

Excellent job on the editing. I know how hard it is to use the selection tool on a polar bears fur... you've done brilliantly, and the end result is well worth the effort you put in.
