Converted to JPEG using BibblePro 4.7
A little rotation and crop
Little dodge and burn here and there

I like it, a bit more contrast and a touch darker would make it a bit more moody.

Cool shot though, very nice.

that bear has more personality than a lot of the models I see on this site.

Beautiful composition. I think the light is either harsh or flat. I'm not that good with this stuff yet to be more specific, but can see that if the light were a little more dramatic or softer, this would be a winner.

Good texture. I'd like to see this with more color saturation, though, maybe a +5 on contrast.
