Hello Goutham,
I rather like the jagged reflection and the capture of the Spot-billed pelican is close to perfection, with technical excellent, fine lighting and natural colours.
On seeing this I might update my P4 to a P9!
Thanks and kind regards,

Hallo Goutham
This is the kind of image that I like. It is true to nature, captured without pretence, does not look as if the animal or bird is posing for you and just as it supposed to be. I like the soft light in the image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Goutham
Beautiful photo. The composition, the colours and the sharpness are excellent.

Fine artistic work friend Goutham! I am impressed with the awesome resolution of your equipment. The detail even in the eye of the bird is simply breathtaking! Bravo! Thanks for your early comments! I was impressed with the suggested web site. Some of the work is amazing indeed. If I decide to joint how can I Register. That issue is not very clear for me! Happy New Year to you as well my friend!
