Great

Hi Harry

Another great outdoors (natural) shot from you. I love the sight of this foraging trio as it made for a beautiful composition showing a polar bear in 3 different poses simultaneously. Great stuff.

The colour rendition on the shot is great and so are the very sharp details. The low lying sun provided excellent light and the reflection of the snow highlighted the shady side of the bear on the right to give ample contrast and definition. The well exposed bears stand out nicely against the surrounding bluish snow.

Well done and TFS.
Regards
Loot

PS. Bears (all kinds) are one of my favourite animals because of their grace and power and probably because we do not have any here in Africa.
