I am getting it OK and it is a nice close up of the face of a good size black bear.
Cliff if you have PSCS try in selective colors making the black just a touch darker. It really made the nose and eyes jump right out. What did you use on the photo for a lens? It is a good looking bear.

Whoaaaaa, that's some bear-stare!!! LOL Hope it was a long lens you used! Great shot, Cliff, you can see her nostrils flaring taking your scent in.

Thanks for the suggestion, Lou. This one seems to have lost some contrast, when I reduced it for the web. This was shot with a 70-200VR and TC17.

I gave that a try; but, then, I got a red x on my screen.
Whatever you did, it showed up. Wow. Although the bear looks a bit sad, I guess it would have scared me a lot if I would have met him in the wild. At least if not way farther away than the picture suggests.
