OH my gosh...what an amazing photo...the colors of the sky are beautiful and the penguins...its like they are amazed as well. TFS

I love penguins! I think they are sooo funny!
I really like this shot, not only because the sunrise sky looks so stunning, but because their sillouettes looks so comical in this shot! they have the body language of long yearning.. for the light!
well done! excellent shot.

G’day Piotr Beautiful image. Excellent exposure, focus, detail, and DOF. Well done!
Only point I have is the strange colour alterations surrounding each penguin!!
