[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The pelicans were circling over the river, diving down to catch fish from the rough spring runoff waters. It was a bright day with the sun starting to move towards the west. Colour has been enhanced slightly and border softened.

What a lovely shot, great composition and very quick shot. Great job done, I know it is very hard to take pictures like this.

Nice inflight Pelican shot.Sharp one.

Well captured Cheryl,
Nicely composed and good exposure. Good sharp details and great colours. I like the soft framing.

I like this photo a lot. Well captured and well framed. Good details and nice colors (is the blue sky genuine?). It's like a painting. Well done & TFS!


Good POV, a difficult angle to get right. Well done.

Wow.. lovely shot. The pelican is quite hard to capture while flying. The details are excellent as well as the sharpness, even if I wouldn't have softened the borders. Good work.

Well done.

I would have fumbled for my camera! Nice quick capture. I can even see the face on this pelican! Crisp clean shot, well done.

Hi Cheryl, lovely capture :). Great exposure, sharpness and details with a lovely composition. Try using NeatImage or similar noise reduction program to deal with the slight noise - otherwise, fantastic :)
