Challenge: Photojournalism IV (Minimal Editing I*)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Canon
Date: Aug 29, 2010
Date Uploaded: Aug 29, 2010

Taken at the Columbus Zoo (go figure). I know its just a wee bit of foot of the polar bear - but I thought it added humor. What I really enjoyed in the image was all of the faces. I dont shoot photojournalism type shots. My eye is not geared towards seeing those images through the lens. But I was pleased this came out as it did. Especially considering the ruleset. Funny - of the three images I have up for vote this is my least favorite and it is scoring the highest. Who would have guessed.

I love how you don't show the polar bear except for a paw.

excellent feature photo, but not enough polar bar to justify the caption. great job on the exposure and composition, considering the editing rule set.

my pick for the blue, just based on image quality.

I really like the picture, but like you cant see no polar bear is more about the tourists watching. Their face expressions are awesome! I will crop the black line at the left. Nice colors!

This would have been perfect with a bit more of the polar bear showing. Still a great picture though!

Really well shot and edited. There are some nagging distractions here, like the finger in the foreground and the paw and sliver of black at the top. But nice job focusing on the people.

not voting yet, but this is a great capture and a perfect photojournalism subject. Nicely done.

If that's the headline, I would have wanted to see a bit more of the polar bear :) Otherwise, an excellent shot, and a good representation for the challenge, though!

I wish you could crop of the top - the rest of the image is AWESOME!

Would have been nice to have captured the bear in the shot. Still pretty well done.
