    Hi Marrion:

Welcome to the site. I look forward to seeing more entries from you, you obviously have a 'good eye'.

I think you were right about the title, as I mentioned in my comment. Thanks for the info on the lens - I had wondered if you had zoomed this in during the exposure. It was the only way I could explain the one sharp eye opposed to the other eye and eye on the left bear which was the same distance from the lens.

    Hey Marion. Good start at Panachallenge. Keep up the good work! Hopefully, you've already started looking for something sparkling to shoot!

    Hi there - thanks for all the comments on my first entry - a great welcome to the community.
I realised just after posting that the title was too sad - I had originally chosen "Can we come down yet?" and that would have been better!
Re the lens blur - the lens I used - the Lensbaby Sweet 3 - is designed to give photos that distinctive blurry halo effect - I am trying it out at the moment so you might see it again soon ;)
Thaks again

    This one has a sad feel to it rather than make me smile. How did you get motion blur on the books at this shutter speed?

    Otherwise nice picture, but I feel the shadows a bit distracting.

    I feel a bit sorry for them.

    Felt my lips curling at this one. Homely. A little bit of camera shake. Maybe a tripod?

    Cute subjects, I like it, but would have liked it even more with out the shadow lines going through them.

    I think they are cute. However the title took away from my initial smile. I think the lighting, especially the shadow lines works very well.

    I like the composition, especially with the shadows from the blinds. They look a bit more sad than smiley - obviously need a hug.

    I like the shadows but the bears seem a bit out of focus. Cute shot though.

    the sun through the blinds make this work very well

    Nice concept - would be better with softer, less-contrasty light. Your caption seems more sad than smile-y.
