A super capture of one of the most beautiful creatures on this planet - certainly looks as if in reflective mood ... Carol
WOW! I would love to take a picture of a Bear out in the wild Great shot Valery
Great shot of a lovely and cuddly looking animal
Wot about the honey Mummy! been waiting for ages! lol. not so cuddly as you might think, great that you managed to get the shot unscathed nice one like it, regards Leon.
Lovely shot; not sure I would want to be that close.
Super shot Valery,great capture well done..Lin
Beautiful. nature at it's best. paul
personally i think that this is an image that gets votes because we all wish we were there and taking the image oursleves - so well done for that.
however, the truth is that the composition of the image could be improved upon - if you are not already familiar with the term, look pu 'rule of thirds' which like everything is only a guide but a good starting point nonetheless
i have taken a look at the instruction manual for your camera and can see that it is perhaps not the easiest or most inuitive regards focus points - however ignore the advice on page 24 as that is only suitable for subjects that you have control over, which rarely includes wildlife
see page 36 regards setting your focus mode to AF-C, and also page 80 regards selecting a focus area
utilising the two options above you would be able to select a focal point to the left hand side of the frame, which would then automatically thrown the bear to the left of frame aiding composition, the AF-C would then continually adjust focus as the subject (bear) moves back and forth or left to right
i hope that this makes sense but drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you require clarification.
oh, should also say well done regards clarity and vibrance
Wow what a capture, I'd love to know where you took this.
