    Hi folks ... a rather different approach with some kind of open minded elements , or one could say a " freaky " approach leaving the norm .
    The original was just too boring with just the subject being a bit interesting with the water splash , but the rest was just misty nothing ! So I ran some gradients in PS .... ending up with this effect , I do actually like
    Image taken at Kuril Lake on Kamtchatka

    Before somebody is complaining about not " correct " colors .... it is done with thought , albeit it might be not " correct "

    I like it, Andreas. I understand why you applied the gradients, suppose you were looking for more depth? If the image appeared flat ( well except for the bear whose colours look nice and he stands out quite well) then I see nothing wrong with what you did.

    Personally I like the frame as is, meaning wide. All I can suggest is that you look at the left corner ( bottom) : seems a tad darker than the right and my eyes tend to run there and then back to the subject. But it's not a big deal, up to you.

    Overall a lovely image and I like the bear in action and water splash. Also the eyes are visible, which is a nice bonus. Those claws are amazing...Thank you so much for sharing!

    PS We still have internet and wifi issues here on the reserve. It is such a struggle and so annoying. The company providing the service ( or rather 'not providing the service' ) said they are bringing fibre to our area soon and we must be patient...

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Thank you Jon and Gabriela for your comments and suggestions , much appreciated .

    The shot is indeed edited more to taste than usual , for the simple reason the overall flatness in 80 % of the frame ... did not float my boat . So I decided to get the bicolor route , cold on bottom a nd top and more warm in the center of interest . Gabriela I do see what you mean with the LLC , did not recognize it to be honest . I could work on it ... but leave it that way for now .
    Will see what comes next from my side .

    Cheers Andreas
