Oof. Another pic I had in my guess for top ten that didn't...

Bummer. I too marveled at your exposure. Your composition is what brought it to a ten for me though.

I like the composition. I also like how the fur looks really soft. The only negative I have is the snout has too much of that neatimage artifact look to it. I might have just blurred that area or at the very least not sharpened it.

Very sweet capture. This past May, in Rhode Island, we experienced the tragic loss of Trixie, a beloved polar bear who lived at Roger Williams Park Zoo since 1989 with her partner Norton. They were the parents of two cubs which now reside at other zoos. I remember watching Trixie mother her cubs from web cam images that originated from her den. Later I took tons of photos of her romping and splashing with them in the pools outside their den. This photo evoked very nice memories for me. Thanks for offering it.

Except for the border, which I'm not keen on, this is a super shot. Great composition, exposure, and sharpness.

Beautiful

Beautiful shot... I think the border blends in a little too much around the top. No border or a contrasting border would probalby enhance the presentation. It still gets a 10 from me... nice work :)
