20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Lonesome Bear

A bear at a wilderness preserve looked so lonesome! I decided to capture his mood. Unfortunately, man-made objects in the background detracted from the feeling I thought I saw on his face. So, I replaced the sky to hide the distractions. No, it's no longer a true scene of the Natural World. It is now an Artistic representation of his mood.
