great shot of this Rockhopper.
These penguins always look so mischeivous ;)
Gorgeous lighting from the deep southern sunrise.
Superb sharpness and detail.

The light is fantastic in this capture, James.
You have made the most appropriate use of it here. The bird just glows in it.
Very vivid and pleasant colours.
TFS and regards.

A fine image for a good scanned job...not soft at all, but your worked has worked you twice....yet you in th end were able to save it all....Very good. It is like finding a vein in an old abandoned mine.

This is a nice shot of this cute little fellow. He sure stands out against that dark background. The lighting adds impact to the image.

Splendid image showing that great eye, great job of getting the exposure so details can be seen in both black and white plummage.

Hi James, I do envy your travel you see so much wildlife around the globe. This is a lovely shot of the Rockhopper bathed in the early morning light. The light shows the Penguin off beautifully with excellent detail on the feathers and the colourful eye. They are unusual and your note is very useful (as always). Good focus, expsoure and sharpness throughout, I like the dark background.
