About the Image(s)

Shy Bear was created in Churchill-Manittoba-Canada (Polar Bears Capital of the World) using a Nikon D5 with the Nikkor Prime zoom lens 180-400 mm f/4 wit an incorporated 1.4x TC for a total of 560 mm and with these settings: ISO 450, f/5.6 and 1/800 sec. The image was PP in LightRoom and cropped. Was a cloudy and snowy day with a temperature of -2 Centigrade. We remained on the Polar Rover's for the whole day. They provided food, and there is a bathroom facility on board. The back of the Rover is an open terrace (originals 1 and 2). These vehicles were designed and built in Churchill Canada

Isaac, this is a very interesting image. What makes the bear stand out seems to be the fact that he is softer than his surroundings. I never thought of that approach but it is quite effective!   Posted: 01/06/2022 15:21:16

Isaac, My screen is showing the bear as quite sharp. The bush makes a nice vignette around the head making it stand out. The background is pretty busy but the bear being white draws you eye right to the head. The catch light in the eyes is also nice. I would like to visit Churchill someday but not sure about having to stay in the Rover. Bruce   Posted: 01/07/2022 20:29:43

Bruce, there are two options depending on your selection: you stay in the stationary rovers/hotel at night and you ride the moving rovers in the day. Usually three nights, or you go to a hotel in downtown Churchill, and you go to the rovers for the day.   Posted: 01/07/2022 21:30:49

Isaac, I just love the look in this bear's face that you captured. He looks like he just wants to play with you, but as your title indicates, he is just too shy to do so! The contrast of his white fur against the foliage and the composition make this an effective image. What a fabulous to place to add to my list of future travels.   Posted: 01/08/2022 12:57:08
