[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know this may seem a little dark but it was taken inside with the only light coming from inside the penguin exhibit. I was watching the boys faces last year when they first got to see the penguins. The one up the end near the boys kept nodding up and down in front of them, it was so funny to watch them interacting with each other. I had the light set to cool white flourescent after getting some rather dull shots with everything else.

Hi Fiona

My word I find this confusing, but I think I've worked it out. It held my attention so it must be a great success. The boys, who are the main subject, are beautifully clear. Great point of view.

Hi Fiona,
A captivating shot, a good result under difficult conditions, I wonder if the penguins enjoy the daily entertainment

Hello Fiona, an excellent idea using this unusual point of view.
The boys are in perfect focus.
Good title too.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Fiona,
I kind of like this division but it was hard to read at first.
It must have been hard to focus in this conditions, but your idea was good.

Hi Fiona,
Very interesting capture and your title says it all. What are the penguins thinking and you have captured the little boys with great interest, well done.


It's an interesting pov, you dared.
It is a challenging exercise, I know, I tried it at the zoo of Paris a few days ago and I got a horrible result, reflections in dirty windows and nothing more.
Here, in the scene that you present, there is this something more, the children's faces with their innocence.
Excellent focus.
