I took this shot for a competition that has “Animals in Black and White” as its theme:
The lighting was a bit tricky because there were a lot of shadows. This was originally shot in color and then converted to black and white in Aperture. I also lightened some of the shadows, cropped, and sharpened the image.
I used a 50mm lens, tripod, and high shutter speed to get the sharpest photo possible.
What do you think? Anything you would have done differently?
The image is also available for sale on my website.

I love this picture. Beautiful in black & white. I especially like the texture of the penguin’s skin.
I absolutely love this picture!
Thank you, it was my favorite of the day!
