These are the penguins at Redcar on the seafront staring at the sign post. I went there today and as the sky was grey I thought a B&W shot would work well, this is just one of many that I took that I liked, hope you like it too.
Data: Canon 20D, Sigma 10-20mm f5.6 1/60sec ISO 100 handheld no flash. Contras adjusted in RawShooter Essentials and coloured in Paint Shop Pro 7.

Classy photo... You've captured superb moment... Professional shot.

Hi Matthew,
A very impressive photo. It gives penguins a spiritual life. The graphics on the gournd is beautiful. The clouds and lighting make this picture pretty serious. Excellent job.

Very nice - it really looks like the penguins are praying. The colors and the way the clouds appear in the sky give it a very nice effect. Really out of the ordinary. Congratulations.

Pèlerinage à Redcar …
Ces pingouins ressemblent à des bonnes sœurs en admiration devant la croix …
Excellente composition et mise en scène B&W superbe, …
Bravo, Matthew !!!

Hey this is a very cute shot! I like it...Dramatic sky, the circular bricks leading to direction sign and those penguins who look indeed lost. Very nice! Well seen..Bravo Matthew!

Hello Matthew,
This is wonderful! When I saw the thumbnail it looked like Nuns praying beneath a crucifix. Everything really works here for a great presentation of a very unique capture. Very entertaining! TFS

Very moody Matthew, I like it! B

Perfect for me...

Hi Matthew,
Very unusual photo to me but so wonderful!! I love the colors of the sky in the background and the circle bricks in foreground, it draws my attention directly to the center of your subject. Good composition and sepia look works fantastic here!!
