About the Image(s)

This image was taken from a moving zodiac boat as we cruised the shore of Elephant Island. Elephant Island is where Sir Earnest Shackleton’s 22-man crew spent 127 days in 2016 awaiting rescue. The exposure settings were ISO 100, S 1/2000 s , and f/5.6. The camera was hand-held, hence the fast shutter speed, and the focal distance was 85mm.

Good placement of the bird in the image slightly off center. Good foreground and great background.   Posted: 10/05/2021 15:00:06

A striking image! I only sugggest opening the shadows a bit. I think I prefer the color version because of the blue sky and contrasting white. Perhaps that implies darkening the sky in the mono version for more contrast too.   Posted: 10/05/2021 17:56:15
