Hi Piotr
Just the right moment. must be real difficult to get the correct exposure with black birds on all white ice: both are perfect.
Great shot

Thanks for this nice picture. Hope for more.

I just discovered your great images taken during your stay in Antarctica. They are wonderful. I love the action in this one. The color of the ice is super and the picture quality is very good. Thanks for sharing.

A great action shot, Piotr.
The details on the penguins are very sharp despite all the movement.
I like the different poses of the penguins.
I am very grateful that you are sharing these rarely seen images with us.
Not many of us get to go to Antarctica.
TFS. : )

Excellent stuff
Peguins in the wild, greta post Piotr.
Fantastic sharpness and great composition.
Well exposed too>

Talk about pure action! Sharp detail, good contrast, wonderful composition, and there's also texture from the ice. I also love the drops of water that splashed up. Excellent job!
