Belle ambiance. L'aspect plutôt monochrome du cliché me plait bien. Les différents plans donnent un bon relief.

Hello , this is a magical scene , super photograph , TFS.
This is where my next big excursion will lead me to, maybe next year... You are really lucky to have seen this. Are you going on a cruise to Antarctica, while you're there?
Nice view of beautiful mountain shapes.
Thanks for the note as well.

What amazing mountains they have there. You say it was off the coast. Were you in a boat? You lost some details in the light and dark value areas but that would be difficult to avoid with such a high contrast scene. I love the birds and the angled rock they are on.

Your notes are very, very interesting and this picture is too :) I like this almost silver lightning, POV, composition and subjects. This exposure makes this picture looks almost unreal. This is beautiful! TFS,

An impressive scene. The layers and depth look great. The foreground layer with all the birds and rock, and the distant layer of beautiful mountains. Looks like a great place to get good updrafts for them.

How vivid and splendid this picture is. Interesting also to read your note on soaring. And the surroundings, they are really most beautiful.

This is in my opinion one of the best photos you've posted here!
What a magnificent photo, full of impact and details everywhere!
The focus and DOF here is outstanding, keeping excellent sharpness on all the shags as well as that impressive mountains behind them, and that is what sets it apart from all the others...what a breathtaking scene and composition!
The contrast and exposure are also terrific here and i think you did a great job there, especially if i take in consideration the harsh light and the angle it was coming from.
All-in-all: a brilliant shot!
Bravo and TFS

Very nice composition of those birds... Not easy to manage the exposition with all those black/white/grey colors! Maybe the foreground is a little bit underexposed (but I must confess that I'm looking from my portable which is not very good on display...). I'm wandering how this picture will be in black and white?

So beautiful ! All these birds in the fore ground, ad those wonderful mountains in the BG ! It's a very powerful picture with a lot of visual impact. I like all the different nuances of grey, it's almost a black and white picture, it's perfect. Straight to my favourites. Very well done !

Majestuosa e imponente vista de nuestro sur argentino. Me gusta la perspectiva, la concentración de aves y los imponentes Andes nevados al fondo, dando toda la imagen una sensación de frio.

Precioso y espectacular lugar el que nos muestras, las aves le dan dramatismo a la toma.

monumentale, sehr stimmungsvolle Aufnahme dieser bewegten Vogelschar in elementarer, sturmgepeitschter Landschaft. Wildnis pur.
Die fast auf reine Grauwerte reduzierte Farbigkeit gefällt mir sehr. Würde hier den Versuch wagen, das Bild konsequent zur Gänze auf Schwarzweiss (Grauwerte) zu konvertieren. Komposition sehr gelungen.
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,
