I can't imagine the ISO you had to shoot at to get this image. But in any case, it was gorgeous.

Awesome shot. You really did a good job with this, I like every aspect of the image so there's really nothing to critique. Maybe the colors seem a tiny bit off? Naw, probably not.

Shot with my Sigma 55-200mm, a lens that continues to surprise me.

Thanks to everyone who turned this into a highlight for me.

Graphicfunk,Goodman, Artan... and someone who gave me hope right in the beginning when I really needed it, wonder if he remembers, Eric Limon... you are as special as you are.

But the dedication goes to a little Korean, Yang Yun-Sun, Yunsi, this one is yours!

Great capture of movement
good luck with the challenge

This is certainly and without doubt one of those amazing images so expertly captured that the viewer needs a towel to wipe off the spray. The detail is breathtaking and it is one of those images that can do full justice to any wall. 8

Great moment! Excellent detail, the only quibble would be darn I wish that bear was facing you! This has some possible stock potential. Great job. 8

04/17/2005 09:27:53 AM
The stopped drops are amazing. I can really see the bear shaking. Magnificent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow! This is great. Can't tell you what I would fix - can't find anything to fix! 9, may bump...

This is a great capture
I would normally mark down a picture when the back of the animal is towards us, but in this case this adds to the composition.

WOW!!! Nice capture! I can feel the excitement you must've had looking through the viewfinder as you captured this. I could be wrong, but maybe a bit oversharpened. But that could be from having so much detail and compressing it down to only 150kb. Great shot!

nice capture, love the spray 10

This is seriously outstanding. I'm not sure if it will meet some peoples' expectations of "action" , but it's a contender in my book.

I don't care about the shutterspeed, what you did just works. Looks great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2005 12:00:12 PM
Great shot. Like the variety of textures and feeling of motion. Minor suggestion.. would like a little more negative space above the bear.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2005 09:51:16 AM
What a great capture! I would have liked to see little bit more of it's face, but a despite that an excellent shot. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2005 09:48:43 AM
Wow! What an awesome shot! I think the fact that you see the polar bear from behind makes it more interesting, and the capture of that water like that is nothing short of amazing! I don't see how it could be improved. It's perfect. 10
