A proud King Penguin amoung a group of other magnificent birds. Taken at Volunteer Point in the Falklands. I had taken lots of the group and wanted to get a head shot and concentrate on one bird. I would welcome your thoughts on whether this shot works or doesn`t.

If you don`t think it does please tell me why and how you would have tackled this subject.

Is the background distracting or does it set the scene?

I look forward to your thoughts and comments.

Lovely shot Janet. The pose,BG, and exposure are fine. I would like to think I could do as we'll.
Nice to hear from you again.
