Cool (literally) blue tones. What an expression on this guy's face ... I'm not so sure that I'd want to be too close to him!! Nice work!!

He was sleeping when we first got there, and I told one of the parents to throw one of their childern in to get his attention, did not go over too well, but at least they smiled at the thought.... Hummm ! Roger

Hi, Roger. The condensation from the breath gives this photo energy and motion. Nicely done! Regards.

Thank you John !

Sleepy old fellow, but came to the party in the end.....

I hope that's condensation and not just morning mouth!

Seriously though, Roger, I really like the transformation conceived by your hugely creative mind....(nice neon glow, too...it really enhances the image)

Think of how large the mouth square would be needed to quell the morning breath of this beast !You would need a pack, like when they all stuck together.......! Hummm !

Roger, great image. I love the toning and the breath. Really gives a cold feel to the image. Nice. Beautiful animal... Dave

Wow, the composition and blue cast are wonderful. I think the blue cast in the highlight creates not only a really cold feeling, but it adds to the polar bear's mystique. I love the misty fog coming out of his mouth. And by the way, "throw one of the children in!" LOL Too funny! You sure your initials aren't W.C.? LOL
