Nice shot and beautiful setting. How dangerous are bears like that?

Wow, so beautiful with the fog... How lucky you were to get to see one! We regularly drive through one of the areas in Sweden with the most bears, but I have never seen any.

Thanks for all the kind comments.

I probably ought to state that the shot was taken from a hide at night. The bears are normally extremely wary of humans so the chances of just happening on one are remote. Even in a hide, you still need a lot of patience to see one!

Nothing 'added' per se. I use Aperture for all my post work so the changes are limited to levels, contrast, etc. From memory, I think all I did was increase the contrast a bit (the original was quite flat due to the amount of mist between me and the bear) and maybe a very slight decrease in vibrance. I usually add a slight vignette to all my shots as well.
