Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: The Username Challenge (Advanced Editing IV)
Collection: Animals in Captivity
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Location: San Antonio Zoo
Date: Dec 24, 2005
Aperture: 6.3
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/640
Galleries: Animals
Date Uploaded: Dec 24, 2005

What a fun challenge! I had so many cool pictures, but in the end, this one was my favorite. I went to the zoo, and the bears especially seemed to pose for me. After the challenge, I'll post a couple more of my bear poses.
_____________
I didn't know until I got some comments in the challenge that Tasha4Paws died in September. I chose her name because I felt a kindred spirit to her -- being a person myself who has an inordinate affection for anything 4-pawed. I knew I would find a photo that I loved for her name. I hope the picture honors her memory.

8 - Very good. Hope you get a smile from this. Criticism; only the bottom 'cut' really, but likely done the best with what you had. Like the straw 'element', good eye capture. Perhaps if the nose and eyes were a little sharper, but not sure, and don't know if the '4paws' would have gained the same focus in doing so. Up to 8 from 7.

Way cute! And appealing lighting and depth of field. It looks like a studio shot with the marble-look background if I ignore the hay, hay in a studio might be a major faux pas. <pun intended>
