Good shot! You've captured these two penguins very well indeed - it's nice to see some more wild penguin shots on TN too. Technically not much wrong here - the exposure is spot on, focus is good and the DOF seems good. About the only I would suggest is uploading with less JPEG compression, since there are some visible JPEG artifacts. Well captured :-D

Hi there, great capture of a beautiful bird! Well done. I agree with the compression, but that is a minor. Welcome to the site and hope to see more of your work soon. Tim

Belle et intéressante composition photographique pour ces Pingouins. Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté grâce à la profondeur de champ maitrisée..
Well done !

This is really a rare one. thanks for this picture. The low angle is chosen greatly, the bizarre rock formation adds also to this picture.

Wow Alexander we don't get many photos from Antarctica. This is a good shot, and the whites are brilliant as they are often hard to photograph. I love your low angle POV. Very well done.
And welcome to TN...

This is an enjoyable posting, Alexander. Not often do I get to see this creature with so much detail. Well composed and good handling of the whites and lighting. Thank you for sharing it with us and welcome to TN.
