- Fun, especially with flying water droplets, but with light coming from left you needed to be there. Not enough face on the black bear.
- The maker found a good subject with the bears fighting. It makes a great nature story. The problem is from the bright sun of midday light. The background has too many hot spots to be pleasing. One solution is to crop out as much as possible and then try to burn in the remaining bright areas.
- More like the old "Father & Son talk" than wrestling. What a great catch, though ! The water & the bears are well defined - unfortunate that the background didn't get the same detail, the eye naturally goes to the bears, though & they're the main subject - Suggestion: experiment w/increasing the f- stop to a possible F22 - f28.
