mine is a bit different, but i find myself spending time looking at it, and it's interesting IMO.
I was at the zoo, and took this shot of the two griz bears playing....what I caught in the reflection of the windows made the shot much more interesting.
this image is not edited other than a little bit of exposure/sharp/sat/contrast.
i'm curious what others think of this shot...comments welcome.
No offense, but I find the reflection distracting. The bear action is great, but I personally would like it better if it had been taken with a polarizing filter to eliminate the reflections.
I disagree. No offence, but I think the point of this photo is missed with such a suggestion. The juxtaposition of the two different zoo inhabitants, guests and those that live there is neat. The wonder on the faces is great. I think it works well. Rather than a reflection it has a real double exposure feel to it. Good job Northstar.
Ions...Thanks, I appreciate your kind words. You describe my thoughts well when I first saw what I had captured. Is it "technically" a great image? NO. But, I've seen pictures of two bears(animals) playing together like this countless times, but this image is uniquely different, and as I said, I find the image much much more interesting. Again, not a technically great shot....but you can't deny that you'll spend an extra second or several looking at it.
