HudsonII by nemmy HudsonII by nemmy
A tiny scrap of photoshopping to get rid of all the background scene - all i did was paint over everything you see above the waterline.

Post Edit:
This is Hudson. He is a Polar Bear who lives with his brother Nelson at Sea World, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. Both bears were orphaned at the age of 9 months and come from the Canadian province of Quebec. Sea World adoped them in 2004 and this shot was taken last year.

They have an underwater viewing gallery in the pool at the enclosure at Seaworld. The glass is kept quite clean which is way cool for taking great shots. [link]

The cub kept on tredding water and swiping at the glass, because he could see his reflection in it, and the silly thing was trying to get the other bear! He did this for about 10 minutes while i kept snapping away at him.

You can see Hudson also in another deviation I submitted [link]

I cut out what was above the water line, in post processing, because I felt it was extremely distracting to the shot and made it look incredibly touristy.

So now that I have taken all the magic & mystery away from this piece, I am sure it will not seem so amazing to you now :o

Most of us know that swimming or simply having a bath is one of the most relaxing things to do... But in case you needed a proof, just look at HudsonII by ~nemmy ( Featured by garrit )

i dont care how much you photoshoped it, the beauty of the water and the softness of the bear which is supposed to be some killing machine is incredible, amazing shot

Stunning! I have seen this kind of thing done with polar bears - and it's so poignant now that they're becoming more and more endangered...

This is a lovely full colour version... The refraction is amazing too!

Well captured!

When i first looked at this pic i got the impression that the bear is drowning and i though of the day that all the ice in the pole has melted and there is no more ice for the bear to walk on.... Maybe it sounds a little unlikly but it would be nice if u point that out in your comments as well.
