How does one actually decide which photo wins the photo of the year? It is so subjective how any one photo can appeal to any one specific person. Think of the times when people share photos that they think it’s awesomeness and your inner voice says meh
Having said that, when I first saw this image of a sleeping bear 🐻 , I felt joy and 🥰 awww and my inside voice said, that’s one great image that the photographer has captured… it’s a special moment in time. For me, that is good enough and therefore, I am glad this image won the People Choice Best Wildlife Photograph of the Year!
