[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sailing the Beagle Channel just of Ushuaia in a small boat is quite interesting. A few small island which host different sea mammals such as Sea lions and Seals also a nice variety of birds including the Rock Cormorant.

I know it could be sharper, but between the rocking boat, the wind and those two fighting I was lucky to get that much.

Hello Sky,
Very good capture and well worth a post, great composition and good details especially the conditions under which you were taking it.
The colors are great, but I have a question if you don't mind the seal on the left has blue on it's flipper and so do the rocks any idea what it is?

How amusing. I posted a shot of sparring elephant seals today. I wasn't fighting wind and wave though. It is an interesting shot in spite of the conditions. Action always adds so much to a wildlife shot. Exposure and color look good . Perhaps a faster shutter speed would have helped the sharpness.

Hi Sky,
Nice "Face Off" shot. Considering the harsh conditions immaculately presented. Interesting blue tones on the rock face as well as the seal's flipper. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

hi Sky,
l'image n'est pas d'une grande qualité mais le moment est très bien saisi, et les conditions pas faciles.

Hello Sky,
a well captured scene of the two large males and the other more or less uninvolved individuals. I like the natural and detailed colour presentation.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Sky. Good capture of these seals. They are amazingly agile on the rocks like your photo illustrates well. Good composition, as if the viewer is there with you. TFS. Murray.

Hi Sky

I love sea lions, Thanks for sharing
