    Wow, a Grizzly (presumably) at 190mm. I wish it were a little brighter. Great Capture.

    So... does a bear "go" in the woods...

    nevermind!

    Having never shot a bear myself. Great, fantastic job! I'm not getting closer than your image on my pc from a bear. Kudos!

    Wow! How close were you to this guy?? This is an awesome shot! I love the water droplets as well. I agree it could be a bit brighter and maybe a bit sharper too. I'm guessing you were using your 70-300 and I know I have trouble getting perfectly sharp images with that lens.

    Yes i was at 300 mm using a log for a tripod, it was frustrating. It was also a very overcast day, nearly raining. I should have turned my ISO up some, which might have brightened up the image but up-ed the noise as well.... its a push pull deal.
    I think i was..... 30 or 40 meters...

    I think it can easily be adjusted. I had a quick go at it.

    Hmm, I can only see TCimages edit ... not the original.

    anyway, seems like a nice shot, maybe a bikt dark in his face.

    I never got that close to a bear .
