17/10/12 – Portrait of Alpheba

So today I’m messing around at home and have come to the realisation that the lighting in this house is horrendous!!!  Like truely terrible.  Anyway, the above penguin is Alpheba – extra points if anyone can guess where the name came from?

This photo was more of a test of my post photo ability, due to how bad the light was I have managed to pull back a semblance of realistic colour into the photo so am pleased with that.  If I get some time tonight between cooking dinner, cleaning the house and playing SO MUCH Borderlands II that it will seem like I have a second life I will see if I can edit out the shadow and clean up the “iris”.

Focal Length: 55mm
