I was finally able to make a shot of the Penguins while they are swimming under water. In the past I couldn't do it, because my 5D Mark II was too slow, but now with the Mark III I could achieve that goal. It was simply too dark for the Mark II to focus in there and the noise when shooting at ISO 3200 was unberable.

Species: Northern Rockhopper Penguin (Eudyptes moseleyi)
Location: Vienna Zoo (Tiergarten Schönbrunn), Austria
Lens: Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM II
Filter: Hoya Pro1 Digital UV
Shot through glass

Daily Deviation

Given 2015-06-28
Swim Swim Penguin! gives the viewer a well-timed photograph of penguins darting through the water. The clear focus and depth of field achieved while shooting through glass are a testament to spike83's skill and patience. ( Featured by JenFruzz )

Sir, this shoot looks as a digital drawing, is that good or is that bad?, honestly, I don't care, I love this photography! Colors, focus, sharpness, composition, is all perfect.

oh thank you.

I know because of the green color it has a special look on it, but the water there is very green which affects all the other colors too

I really enjoy how you had the focus on one penguin but also your eye is drawn to the other. Nicely done.

Thank you, but to be honest, I did not pay much attention to the other penguins. It was hard enough to get one at least a little sharp.

Oh yes their bodies have adapted very well to the water, but it makes them pretty slow on the ground.
