Hi fellow POTN'ers!

Looking for an opinion on this shot...this past weekend I had a phenomenal session with a momma grizz and her two cubs of the year. 6 hours of nursing, wrestling, feeding all right in front of me, the experience of a lifetime.

I took hundreds of shots and got so many that I love, but my favourite so far is this one and a few others like it. There is one problem though....see that lovely piece of metal garbage in the lower left? They picked it up somewhere on the beach and were playing with it and when nap time came they just dropped it there. I HATE things like that in a wildlife photo, but there is nothing I can really do...what are your thoughts? And cloning it out is a) something I don't normally condone on that large a scale (removing elements from a photo) b) WAY beyond my skill level.

So does that piece of trash really kill the shot? Or do you not even notice it?

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it, would have been nice to shoot them without any junk in the image but it blends in pretty good, they had been playing with it and you sure couldn't go take it away from them.
This is a very good shot and I'm sure you have many more. Wish I could have been there.

That's an incredible photo. I wouldn't worry at all about the little tin. Where was this taken at?

The tones in the metal make it look enough like part of the splintered tree trunk next to it that it isn't conspicuously a different kind of object. If you hadn't described the problem before showing the photo, I might not have spotted it.

Thanks everyone, glad to hear that it doesn't stand out too much.

For those who asked, this was taken in Knight Inlet, BC.

I had to look hard to find it.
I wouldnt worry about it. Its a very nice shot.
Perhaps you could do just a tiny bit of blur on it to make the edges less visible.
Thus not cloning it out but also making it less visible.
