Taken in the penguin area of colchester zoo. a very pleasant day out and a place i would strongly recommend visiting.

fairly heavily editted, including cropping, diffue glow, curves adjustment, bit of dodge and burn and cloning out two little bits of poo floating in the water. i would have preferred if it were a bit sharper, but the buggers are just too fast!

Beautiful!! This is a great composition. I love the capture of the bubbles but what I like most of all is the blue tint to the shot. It gives it an icy, serene feeling. Quite beautiful!

Well done! Nice color, excellent cropping, composition. Dof, other tech things, I can't address as I don't know anything about underwater photography. I just like this photograph.

Cool shot. This turned out pretty well if this was taken behind glass.

Aw! This is really wonderful. I love the touching nature of it - the sense of movement in the composition. Really well captured.
