    Daan, you got some AMAZING shots there!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!!! Where to start? Oh, I know, the penguin shot (very cute, especially given the distance). Thanks for thinking of me and making sure you got a shot!!

    The sharpness and colour on virtually all of these shots is jawdropping. My faves are #4, 9, 10, 11 (that's an albatross, right?), 13 (very cool perspective!), 15 (love it!!), 18 (interesting reflections), 19, 20 (awww, lookit da puppy!), and 21. Tough job to even narrow it down. Man, I LOVE this thread!

    The colour in #6 is just downright amazing, I'm glad you didn't bump up the saturation on that one (some would be tempted to). and #15 is beautiful.

    Thank you all so much, its just great :)
    And yes, #11 is an albatros. Not one of the biggest flying around there, these can get a wingspan of about 2.5 meters. While the biggest can get a whooping 3.5 meters.

    Fantastic shots Daan. Looks more like you were on assignment for National Geographic than just on Vacation.

    wow. great series .. too many to comment individually though ;)

    So I will just name my favourites: #4 and #6

    #4 is really special, even though just sheep ;) .. it looks almost as if those sheep had training in camouflaging ;)
