Ocean Flight

Two pengiuns diving together at the London Aquarium.


It was rather difficult to get a good shot of the penguins because they swim so fast/erratically, the light is rather low (particularly when they are under the water) and you're not allowed to use flash!


I would have preferred it if the eyes of the top one were in slightly better focus, but generally happy with this one given that the aperture was f2.8 and shutter speed was only 1/100s. I also had to recreate the tip of the beak of the bottom one (and extra sea) because it had just gone out of the bottom of the picture - if my reactions had been a bit quicker I'd have had both properly in the original photo and the top one's face would have been in better focus.
