Welcome home!

We missed you. I do hope you brought your trained penguin home with you so he can pose in other unlikely locations, popping up unexpectedly.    

Delightful picture to see on the home page.

Best,
Eric

Welcome home indeed. We've been waiting to see what you guys did on your trip.

The penguin, iceberg, sea creature shot is amazing. What a wonderful planet!

A few days before you are due back, I start getting antsy waiting for the new shot on the home page to pop up and as usual, you didn't disapoint!!

Very nicely done!!

Eventually, I'll get down there with you all.  For now, I must continue to keep the homefires (and the business fires) burning.

Thanks Michael!!

Thanks all for your comments. More to come soon. I just have to catch up on 3 weeks of missed emails, bills, letters, phone calls and such first.

Welcome back, Michael. It has occurred to me quite often that a passion for photography often results in one visiting places that one might not otherwise visit, especially when such visits involve a considerable degree of discomfort.

I consider this to be a very positive benefit flowing from a passion for photography.

I also like your first image from this trip on the home page.

That's clearly a penguin squeak toy borrowed from the lito deck of the Antarctic princess cruise ship he was on.  In fact I think that whole thing was shot in the ships pool.  I think I see Isaac in the background...

(I forgot to say welcome back.  So, welcome back!)

The most interesting thing about the 'King Penguin Conference', to me, was the depth of field, where all foreground birds were in crisp focus, leaving the remainder of the herd (?) as backdrop blur...what was the f-stop and focal-length, and was this planned?

Of course it was planned ;-)

Michael was shooting with the Hasselblad on that shot -- the birds at the foreground were probably 2-3 meters away.  With that being the case, I would imagine that anything from f/4 to f/8 would give the suitable blur.  I can't calculate the focal length for a medium format camera... maybe a 150 mm lens? or 80 mm 35mm equivalent?
