Artist's Description

My favourite capture. It was shown on UK national TV on the BBC “One Show” on 14 Apr 2009.

I took this at Woburn wildlife park in Bedfordshire, England, at the sealion pool. Unfortunately, the position of the viewing area meant that I was shooting into the light so that all my shots (except this one) were over exposed, even bracketing shots did not produce the kinds of natural colour I was looking for.

This one shot, however, was perfect, a close up of the animals head. The only adjustment I had to make was to the skin wound (scratch) on the lower right of the animals head behind the ear (that little hole), as during printing the scratch came out as pure white and looked like print gap on the photo.

Shot taken hand held with a Canon EOS 5D, EF 100-400 f4.5-5.6L IS USM lens at 300mm focal length, f5.6, 1/124sec, ISO 100, AWB.
