Great uniform pose on these 2. The whites look a bit pink on my screen?

Hi Jake,
Very cool poses and overall photo. I like the nice clean sandy BG but would agree the image as a whole has almost taken on a pink cast? This year i have learnt how hard it is to expose for black and white penguins. I can see very little details in the black on the face of the penguin, and very little evidence of an eye at all, but at the same time looking at the whites on the chest you would have been hard pressed to brighten the exposure without blowing whites. The blacks on penguins are just so black. TFS
Thanks for looking,
Michael Ashbee

Jake, great-looking pair, donned out in tuxedos.  Love their similar head up poses and their fancy color markings, it's like a sunburst on their neck - very cool image.
