wounderful! bellissima e very sweet

Hello Piotr,
A great scene captured in this picture.
You managed to get this cute couple of penguins with so maestry.
I like a lot the POV used here, the pose of the penguins, the illumination, colors, exposure and focus you got.
The orange of the beaks and legs adds a color accent to the dominant whites of the picture.
Composition is a really good one!.
Congratulations, thanks for share and warm regards right up there in the Antartic!

Hi Piotr,
You've got very fine details of feathers and nice contrast of orange on "B&W penguin suit". Irresistible cute birdies!

Hi Piotr

Wow.... this is just awesome. Love this shot of two bundle of fluff. Thank you!

How adorable are these two little Gentoo babies Poitr.

I check The Gars O'Higgins webcam in the Antarctic everyday to watch the penguins several times a day. I can't believe how quickly the babies grow up. The Antarctic looks like a very special place.

I love the pose of these two little ones with their beaks touching. Nice detail, lighting and composition.

This is just the cutest shot, Piotr.
It is awesome that you are actually there and taking these incredible pictures.
Besides the "cute" and the "exotic" factors,
the photo is excellent in its sharpness and exposure and POV.
