I am not a big fan of bears, so this is as close as I am getting! Maybe I need more than a 12x zoom. I loved the autumn colours in Denali national park anyway, so its good to include them.

I did not edit in photoshop, although it would be good to some how enhance the detail on the bears. I had to use a high shutter speed as I had no tripod.

This is very impressive for the reasons you state - these awesome bears and the fall colors. A pity that mama is looking away from the camera, but in situations like this you can't hang around. Were you on foot? In a car?
Perhaps it needs a little sharpening.

Nice shot especially hand held with a tight zoom. Wow. I've tried lots of shots like this but not so sharp. Colors are wonderful.

Hey Paul,
I think it is a good shot indeed. The colors in the scene make up for the loss of detail, with a tripod, would have been excellence....
Good shot...

Great fall colors set with the bears! Denali Park is my stomping grounds so I definitley appreciate a nice image of the outstanding fall foliage and throw in bear family eating berries and you've got a winning photo.
