Hello Zhewen

This is a magnificent shot! Did you go to 'The Penguin Place' to see the Yellow Eyed? Well done and thank you!

Hi Zhewen,
impressive...though cropping could help the compo IMO.

I have also been there and shot some nice Hoiho's myself. Unfortunately I still had my old equipment then and my pictures aren't that good. Yours however is excellent. The yellow glare is radient and the POV & pose are just excellent. Very good focus and well composed. Well done!

Hello Zhewen,
This is excellent! A very unusual POV and a great pose from the Penguin. Great detail and colours, perfect exposure and light. Good DOF and nicely composed/framed, all in all a great portrait shot, very original and quite striking.
