    That is a keeper for certain. My only minor thought would be a slightly different crop (if possible) that is wider horizontially, loses some of the foliage at the top, still incorporates the water and provides some more room to the right of the bears. Again, my 2 cents for what it is worth. Nonetheless, a wonderful image as is.

    I agree with Scott on the crop if the detail allows for it. Magnificent capture either way.

    Amazing wildlife capture.

    I, too, would agree re thinking about re-cropping it. What I find a nuisance in trying to 'see' the crop, is that rock sitting on the ground above the mother's head. A 1:1 crop, holding onto the existing bottom of the frame, would take it out and place the bears quite well in the frame. But I'm not sure a 1:1 is best for this ... although the more I look at it ...! A 4:5 ratio takes that rock back into play. You'd have to try it and see, if you wanted to experiment with crops.

    Took several hundred images of these two. I have several that are as suggested.
    One of my goals from this trip was to shoot more portrait (tall) images for resale.
    Many of the purlishers we deal with want portrait vs landscape shots - (fit magazine dimensions).

    Once in a lifetime image...

    I love the shot however, I agree with Donald that cropping just below the rock above right would bring more attention to the bears.

    A little side note: I was salmon fishing with a guide in an Alaskan stream with a high bank to our back. The other three members of our party were in view slightly downstream. Suddenly some rocks and dirt were dislodged from directly above our heads. The guides eyes grew large as he looked up at the top of the bank. Luckily, the bear lost interest and moved off. I think that he or she realized that we didn't have any salmon to take away from us. The bear could have had all of my salmon if I had any.

    BTW: I just accessed all of Jaime's the zenfolio shots of Alaska and they are wonderful...
