Wow James, a magnificent image. A perfect moment in time. The parent and baby look just fabulous. It is amazing how perfect they preen themselves. Immaculate quality of the image.

belle image "familiale", pas question d'approcher sans nul doute. Bon équilibre global. Un petit travail sur le BG et la légère surexp donnerait un bon résultat.

Very sharp and crisp with a great POV.

What a fantastic capture. I am amazed you were able to get so close and take this shot. I have never seen an albatross and she is lovely. Wonderful colors and details. And the baby!!! Just a marvelous picture.

Thank you for your kind words and interest.
You have shared a really sweet shot. Amazing pictured scene and skilful execution. I like how the shot is exposed so much. You managed to solve the rather difficult task (shooting so contrast objects) perfectly. POV and DOF are selected precisely exactly. Bravo and best regards.

Hi again, James
This is quite a stunning shot! I really liked this one since i first saw it as a thumbnail in the gallery!
Now only did you manage to capture this splendid species of albatros in a lovely pose, but you also got a small and cute baby there! Terrific!!!
The composition here is excellent and the exposure is very well managed, despite the strong contrast from the bird's plumage.
I also like the interesting shape of the nest, too, nicely visible here.
All-in-all: a superb job!
Bravo and TFS
Wow James, this is a fabulous! I'm sorry I have missed some of your shots lately, work and more work. I am wondering how how or low they nest on the cliffs in the Falklands? This is a great close up. To photograph an Albatross is a dream for me at the moment. But to have one on the nest with a new chick, amazing. Wonderful light colour and shadows, great POV with the chick.
