I am very excited about the comments received so far on this submission. I did process this a number of ways and this was the one I liked best. I understood there was risk people wouldn't get it, but I am so pleased that those of you who did "get it" liked it...

This was technically difficult. I was shooting through a chain link fence (the lines of which you can see in the upper left and lower right of the image. My 24-105 wouldn't fit through of course, so I just went with what I had.

Stupid stupid voters! This should have ribboned. I gave it a 10 and would have scored it higher if I could have.

wow, almost like two waves are fighting each other. I often thought that surf waves look beastly...

Ha...I almost gave this a 4 ! I didn't know what it was. Good thing I checked it out !!!! I'm wondering how many people will make the mistake ?

This one threw me at first. I couldn't tell what it was. The lack of color makes the bears blend into the background and has a bit of a Bev Dolittle like effect. I love the fact that such a great immage threw me at first. I suspect it looks great in color too and would like to see a color version when the challenge is finished. A very creative! 10
