CommentA sizeable Chinstrap colony on Deception Island, Antarctic Peninsula. To the left, over the ridge, was another bay with a lot of Chinstraps as well. Deception Island is home to a research stations and is still geothermally active. The large caldera lake in it's centre, breached on one side enabling ship entry, is somewhat warmer than surrounding water due to this activity.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/1000 sec, f8, ISO 400.
Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction (at about 50% of default values). A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements v9) where noise reduction was applied and adjustments made to lighten shadows, darken highlights and increase midtone contrast as appropriate. Main subject sharpened after resizing for upload.
LocationDeception Island, Antarctic Peninsula (Unknown)
