Proud to be Penguin

By SailorJack
King Penguin taken in South Georgia 2008.
Amazing animals and we were definately more curious of them than them of us.
Great to see them in their natural enviroment!

Hello, Gordon. A very natural image and nicely exposed, especially considering the high contrast of black and white on the penguin. I realise you have included the background because you want to convey the natural setting, but the snow on the mountain is quite distracting, as is the object on the left (a roll of cable?). It's a real pity that you couldn't have excluded that when shooting. The eye is not very clear, but I've tried to rectify that in my modification, where I cropped top and left, placing the penguin off centre, cloned out the cable (?), used the dodge tool on the head, adjusted highlights/shadows and contrast a touch.
