A fantastic photo of the Bears. A good title as one of them does look like he is smiling. A very clear shot with a lot of detail in their fur. Good colour and focus. Well done. TFS.

Excelente composición, enfoque, profundidad de campo, colores ... todo. Fotografía fantástica. Muy bien la piel de los animales.
Saludos desde España.

Hello Rob,
Greetings from Denmark!

A magnificent animal, nicely potraited in the picture of yours. It's amazing how detailed it is, how you can see the hairs in the fur.

Nice sharpness.

Maybe you could explain where in Germany you have taken the picture.


Excellent capture. Nice pose from those too. Nice to see them free in their natural environnement.
Brilliant colors and composition. I like your pic better than workshop of methos (overuse of the tool, ending in a non-natural effect).
Maybe I would have chosen to clone out the twig which is in the way (I can't do a workshop from the computer I'm currently using).

Wow, Rob... That is quite a close-up of these majestic bears.
Great light and details... and a fantastic POV.
How far away were they? Impressive shot.
TFS. : )

Hi Rob

Awesome shot. Love the snow on the bear. Good management of the exposure. Lovely work. TFS.

Hi Rob,
I think they are planning a baby ;)
Great and rare shot!
I love the details!

I tried a workshop, hope you wil not mind!

Hi Rob
Congrats on a great picture. A nice portrait of a couple! They look really happy. Good control of exposure for the whites of the snow. It contrasts well with the dark brown fur. Good sharpness too.

Hallo Rob,
Wat een indrukwekkende plaat en compositie, de uitdrukking op de snuiten van de beer zijn geweldig.

Hi Rob,
Prachtig compositie met de takjes en pov. De kleuren komen mooi uit tegen de sneeuw. Ook heel goed te zien dat er verschil zit in de kleuren op de snuit van het mannetje en het vrouwtje.
