Ted

By Fefe
Sad

A natural still life today, well I would say it is a still life...I do not think this bear is going anywhere SadSad
Spotted on a walk in the woods a few weeks ago, just sitting there all filthy, damp and miserable.
I did not arrange him. It was natural pose Wink
Colour for the lead, mono as a version. Just tweaked but I converted to mono first and after processing the mono, I reverted to colour.
His ribbon, if you look close it is leaves, not a ribbon at all. I did not arrange that either...just as it was.

So happy you liked my Day to Night image! Thank you all so much Grin

Awww, poor ole Ted, all alone with no-one to love him.
I do hope you took him home and gave him a nice warm bath with lots of bubbles and a snuggly blanket.

A really sad image Sad

I think you were right to revert to colour, it's almost mono colour anyway and shows more detail of liitle Ted and his garland of leaves, and increases th atmosphere of what is a sad picture indeed.
Well seen and photographed.

My sentiments exactly Diane, hope he’s warm and dry with you now, poor chap. Sincerely, Mr P. Bear 🐻

Poor old Ted

There is nothing more painful than saying goodbye to something that’s brought so much joy and beauty to your life. However, some goodbyes are just inevitable.

Oh My...I left him right there.....I feel so bad now 😧😢😢😢
I knew it was a long shot but what if his family came back and he was gone!
I would have been a bearnapper 😟

Poor thing, perhaps it was forgotten?
Colour for me, Diane.

Aww, poor old Ted looks as though he has seen much better days, he seems rather bedraggled and his pose really does say it all!! I like both versions but I think the colour just has the edge!! 🧸

Lovely image Diane, great mono and excellent processing in the colour conversion.
Poor little Ted left alone in the woods.

Poor Ted! 😢 You should have picked him up and booked him into TV's 'Repair Shop', they'd have him looking like new! 😃 Like both versions, think the lead just wins it for me, for the 'ribbon', which doesn't stand out in mono 👍
