[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had not had the opportunity to photograph pelicans in as much detail as I did on this occasion.

Fortunately they were as co-operative as they were.

It's a wonderful pelican portrait.Details on mouth
are great.I can see blood in veins.

Excellent photo Peter!
Great sharpness, details, DOF and POV.
The photo is too tight.

Excellent work, TFS!

Great shot Peter!
I agree with Nitzan about the photo beeing too tight.
This is an excellent shot anyway!
I like the eye it is so strange!


you have captured it just at the right moment! wonderful timing! Great details and DOV. only that if the sun is shining on it better then it would be perfect. but this cant be helped. i think your cropping is ok. i think the eye looks weird too. looks like it was drawn on the head. thanks for showing!

PS: i have just posted a photo with title similar to yours--time for breakfast!!

Great shot Peter, it give the pelican a very surreal look. I love the way the light comes through it's pouch. Very good work.

Belle image et composition très originale. Bravo.

Technical quality:***

Nice shot, but it's framed a bit too tight.
Well done.

Great close up picture of a quite happy pelican. Good sharpness and colors.
I see you have the right equipment for this type of photography.. the 70-200 f/4 L is a great lens.
