Young Jackass Penguin

By sferguk
I will not try and fool anyone here, this photo has been heavily photoshoped to remove scratches, smudges and water drops from the glass above the water line and feathers and debris from below. I thought the photo was worth all the effort. Taken at Birdworld.

You've done well, doesn't look like it's shot through glass.

The under/over water thing reminds me of David Doubilet's work.

Removing dirt and feathers doesn't constitute HEAVY PS work in my opinion. This a quite different and an excellent shot. Paul

amazing, and it makes me wonder how you did it. Can you go into detail as to how you shot it through glass. Is it taken in a tank? Love it anyway. deserves a readers choice award .

Yip, taken throw a window in their tank. The youngsters kept rubbing up against the glass. The glass window was incredibly dirty and needed major work to clean it up so I used the clone and heal tool to sort that out....oh and a whole lot of time too.
Tanx for the comments peeps..

Mucking fagic. Very good and well used photoshop skills. Production of an image worth a huge amount both cash and whatever. Love it. So should any person worth their salt. An ideal example to show the photoshop skeptics. Brill, fab, wicked, mucho goodo.
