Slick pengüin

Hi!

Great class, I find it very useful and clear, I know I'll be going back to it for inspiration and reminding. 

I took this picture of my father a few years back. I like it because it's funny and it tells a story. He fell and broke his little finger in Calafate trying to get great pictures of the glaciars; he was kind of anoying me by taking too much time with the camera while our group left as behind.

The photo shows you the injury so I always end up talking about it but also pictures a pengüin messing with the wallet in his pocket so it's funny (plus I was yelling at him not to touch the pengüin or other pengüins would not interact with it anymore). 

Clearly I took the picture in a hurry when I saw it happening so I wasn't thinking about composition. I think it would be a much better picture If I could erase the other person's feet and  maybe crop the photo a little at the left, even leaving out the second pengüin so it could be less distractive. Although the second pengüin can also make the composition a little more dynamic. What do you think about it?

Hope you have a laugh with it.

Regards!

Cynthia
