Interesting, i voted for the penguin option. With my slow net the photo on WP slowly loaded from the top down and I thought i would vote for the hammer as it slowly came into view as i thought it was going to be a strong vertical hammer portrait, but then it stopped halfway through the fins and it seemed like a very unnatural place to "end" the photo, so it was the penguins for me.

Good eye, Mike. If it turns out the shark is the winner we'll crop it differently for the cover. I've seen the file, and the pecs are there.

How about a penguin 'In the Water', damn they're fast and hard to film. Hammers are too easy.

Especially great hammerheads. I don't see photos of them so often. Having said that, I love the environmental aspect of penguins.

Would love to film a Great Hammerhead, never even seen one. A ton of scalloped hammers though.

I would definitely go for the hammerhead. In my eye more visually pleasing.
