Hello Jen !
Wow, this picture is WONDERFUL ! I love everything - the poses of the Penguins, their markings, their eyes circled whith white, th"eir cute little beaks. The blue sky is gorgeous, the exposure is very well-handled on the whites, the details are excellent, the composition and POV are perfect. Very well done !

Hello Jen,
Very dynamic shot, with beautiful colours and perfect sharpness. Not easy to take in full action. Well done!

amazing pic, refreshing for us in the hot summer, TFS Ori

Hi Jen

Nice capture of these fascinating birds! Excellent, low POV and its really nice to see pictures from as far flung as Antarctica! Did you have any problems with the camera in the cold?


Hello Jen, very nice shot of these 4 penguins. I like your choice of depth of field to bring the lead bird into sharp focus with a gradual drop in focus on the later ones. Control of light has been handled very well with excellent detail seen on the white of the birds and the snow. Your positioning, low, provides very good balance in the shot, and provides a great blue background to the scene. Some notes discussing technique and or processing would be nice.

Thanks, John

Hallo Jen
This image softened my heart and is a feast to the eye. We had another member James Parker who spoiled us with lovely Penguins photographs but have been rather quite for some time now. You have filled the void he has left with this image. The detail captured on both the black and white is great. Each individual penguin is a picture by itself. Thanks for sharing this foursome. It was a pleasure to look and appreciate your image. Best regards.
