Hi Sky,
Great shot. I love species interacting.
Nice composition.

Hallo Sky,
spektakuläre Aufnahmen, die Du von Deiner Reise ans Ende der Welt von Südamerika mitgebracht hast. Eine herbe Welt, die nach viel Wind und kaltem Regen aussieht, und die mit ihren Begegnungen von schneebedecktem Hochgebirge und rauer See, und vor allem mit ihrer urweltlichen Ursprünglichkeit verzaubert. Danke für die faszinierenden Einblicke in diesen entlegenen Winkel der Erde.
Mit herzlichen Grüßen,

Hello Sky!
This rocks have to be really fantastic! So many mammals and birds together in such concentration :)
But of course it is not the only thing I like in this photo. The moutains in the BB are really nice too :)

Hi Sky,

This is a very rich looking environment shot, it has very nice clarity with lots of interesting animals to observe. :)

Hi Sky,
You have captured so many things in this single shot. Amazing. The snowy mountains, the low clouds, blue water, hard rocks, the seals, the cormorants and to top it all the light & shadow effect. Wonderfully done and composed. Kudos.

Hello Sky,
This shot gives a hint on what an amazing experience it must have been to visit Tierra del Fuego. The seal and birdlife are well depicted on this rock and well composed against the mountainous BG. Look forward to seeing more from your trip!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Sky,
Busy place you have captured here beautifully, crisp detail, nice colors and great depth of field, what a scene.

What an interesting wild shot with so many animals and sea and mountains. It is such a high contrast scene that the sky was burned out. That is preferable to losing detail in the animals though. I find the over exposed sky distracts from the rest of the scene as one's eye always goes to the light area first. I tried a workshop with only moderate success, but I do think it puts more focus on the animals.

Evelynn : )

hi sky,
very nice capture of both the species together, nicely composed shot, fine pov,
tfs & regards

Hello Sky

All of these shots are so amazing.The scenery is wonderful.The mountains in the background make a beautiful backdrop for the activity going on ,on the craggy rocks.Very good focus and sharp detail,great shot.TFS


I envy you the opportunity afforded to be able to take this shot, nice work.


Hello Sky,
Interesting spot that so many animals live peacefully. I like the way you composed this picture. Sharpness and exposure are great. Seem that these animals are enjoying warm sun.

Hi Sky

Another magnificent shot from you from this lovely trip you just took.
Again a splendid view over some animals and againg and breathtaking landscape behind them!
The composition here is really outstainding in my opinion and it presents a balanced view over a colony and the environments around it.
Even if the upper part is overexposed, i still like the excellent details and colors on the rock cormorant and the seal lions.
Exceptional DOF and POV, too.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Sky,

You took full advantage of a wonderful opportunity. This is a fascinating and very interesting picture. The scenery is magnificent and how amazing to find so many of these two different species. Great!


C'est vraiment la nature dans toute sa beauté !
Bonne journée.

Hello Sky,
This is so beautiful! What a great capture with those two different species at the same place. I like this exposure a lot, beautiful colors and contrast. You have seen so many beautiful things in your trip :) Well done and TFS,

Hi Sky.
I like how well you have managed with complex lighting. Shot is perfect exposed, contrast and its colours are bright and rich. Pictured scene, composition of the shot, selection of the POV are excellent too. My compliments and TFS.
