Hi Piotr,
beautiful surreal image of the Weddel seal. I might have taken out the part of the left seal.
Regards, Jacob

Hi Piotr,

A fantastic capture of this seal. Wonderful colors, detail, and a beautiful composition.


Witam Piotrze!
Rewelacyjny efekt zasosowania szerokiego kata z filterm polaryzacyjnym (tak przynajmniej zgaduje :>). A przy tym przezabawna poza foki. Naprawde swietne zdjecie!
Wiosenne pozdrowienia!

Beautiful shot Piotr. I really love this pic, great photo. Well done. tfs. Stev
