About the Image(s)

Every mono portfolio needs a penguin. On a 2006 cruise around South America, at the southern tip I took an excursion to a penguin nesting colony. This one posed nicely in soft light next to his/her burrow. Shot with Canon 10D and 200mm lens (1/125s, f/4, ISO 100), originally processed in Lightroom with small tonal adjustments, recent mono conversion with green filter preset.

Very nice profile shot. Excellent choice for monochrome since the subject was mostly monochrome to start with. Well worth revisiting from your back catalog. My only thought is to consider tightening the crop to include less from the bottom and right edge.   Posted: 01/11/2022 14:41:46

Very nice shot. But, I think the photo is too centered and the out of focus area at the bottom bothers me. In my revision I've done as Henry suggested by cropping both the bottom and right side.   Posted: 01/15/2022 05:41:45
