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 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.
