Morning stroll

By Stuarty
This is one of my favourites from a completely personal point of view. Most of the bear shots need some cropping but this is just as shot. Minimal levels/saturation/usm too. Was the diagonal deliberate? Was it luck that the bear and shadow only just snuck into the shot? Whatever, the Svalbard experience took me further up the learning curve.

A beautiful image, it must have been difficult to take shots against the white glare of the sun on snow!

This is excellent! A very good, ney, perfect exposure in tricky light. Great comp and facinating subject matter. This one should be in National Geographic! Smile
