Thank you all for the comments. It is funny how some of the simplest shots come out the best. And hat tip to Bear_Music for feedback on the amount of crop... I was leaning much tighter.

Maybe a little sad, but very beautiful. I'm happy for you for this ribbon, well deserved. I had voted an 8 9 for this photograph and is still one of my favorites in this challenge. Congratulations!

Definitely my favorite. Poor depressed teddy bear. Love that window, editing and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I would like to see the bear a little sharper and especially a little more prominent in the composition, but I really like this. Top ten for me. Voted Earlier.
