A fantastic and rather humorous capture of this Pelican. There is so much to love about him. The head with the full feathers, the eyes opened so wide, the opened beak and the droplet falling, the wonderful feathers and the wings held behind him. Excellent colors and details of the entire bird. The water with the splashes is wonderful.
That is an expression to put a smile on any face. It is a wonderful moment you have
seen and captured here. Good POV with the frontal approach and the momental eye
contact. Excellent composition too with the bird standing on the 2/3 vertical axis. I do
think the image lack a wee bit of lighting though. I know you're not new to this game
and far being it for me to try and teach you something, but I did a quick workshop just
for the fun to try and bring out a little more daylight. It does seems like the image was
captured under cloudy conditions which probably made it a little darker.
Well done and TFS.
It is the middle of the night here on the Mali/Senegal border - I cannot sleep! Great shot - wonderful timing and good eye contact detail.
I read Loot's comment and had a go at a workshop - my first ever on TN!

Salam Akhi Prof. Ahmet,
you have captured the image so well. the moment is taken is a split of a second. I like the frozen movement of water and the wide open beak.
you have given a very effective emphasis here.
The streaks of feather near the neck is very lovely too, but the two eyes are very special here.
