Took photo at SeaWorld "Penguin Encounter" Used Auto setting on camera to not miss anything as the lights and people were unpredictable. Couldn't get very close so I used the 10X zoom on the Sony. These are called Macaroni Penguins.

In Photoshop...sharpened, adjusted color and levels, cropped, dodged and burned. Ran NN, cropped again saved for web, sharpened, save for web again.

11/29 This seems so lame now that I have seen SteenM's "Perspective IV" Emperor Penguins in Antarctica!! Wow! I feel a little silly, but I'll enter it anyway.

Love the cute plump penguins. The composition and lighting is very nice. Especially like how the tires from the top guide you in a flowing motion to the penguins on the lower rock. The greyish green tone of the rocks makes the penguins stand out even more. Love the punk hairdo of the one on the left. Hope this one does well.
