My only issue with the polar bear photo winning, is that it seems like this sort of photo wins all the time. Donít get me wrong: Itís a stunning shot and would be a worthy winner. It also does a much better job of storytelling than most, e.g. the Ethiopian Wolf picture.
Well said GaliWalker.
Polar Bear shot came "preloaded" with storylines many of us already have in our consciousness.
And, yes it is the "sort of photo that wins all the time."
Ethiopian wolf had a steep slope to climb story wise, most of us probably have no prior knowledge of them.
I'm remembering other polar bear pictures I posted a year back or so. They were from an abandoned outpost in the Soviet Arctic and seemed to set off a deep round of comments on this board.
