Lovely pose and setting, wonderful expression on her face. I see the same thing here as on some other bear images I happened to see yesterday, in that it looks over-sharpened and over-exposed with all the white in the fur. Now I'm wondering if it's just the wet fur. For my curiosity more than anything, if you tried processing this with say 1/2-1 stop lower exposure, does that appearance change?

Here's a less sharpened version with an exposure adjustment.  She had fairly light fur so I didn't go more than a third of a stop darker.  I think the wet fur tends to sharpen to a lighter/whiter color
