Amazing lighting Deborah.You definitely had your settings right.
Crisp focus and a beautiful POV. Sure looks great on the dark background. Been missing your photos...sorry.
Good day to you.

A beautiful captured portrait of this pelican bad boy. He needs a comb and some hair styling gel :D. Thanks a lot for sharing.

This is a funny composition with great details and excellent control on exposure. I love this dark background which is much appropriated for this lovely subject. This is an original picture and your notes are interesting. Thanks,
It's different. Focus on the eye/beak and short DOF has softened the neck feathers losing some definition. Colouring is excellent and there is no burn out of the whites. I would have liked to have seen it in portrait mode showing more of the bill.

I really like this portrait!
It is very well framed from a different point of view, and the white plumage is captured with great details...
A well balanced composition, and my eyes are focused on the subject right away!
Composition is subjective and the artist has free reign to create. Sometimes outside of the box works well..I posted a not-so-appealing toad headshot/extreme closeup awhile back, using nearly the same view from the side & behind..I like it :)
Are you sure this was taken in the Middle East?!
I don't think there's a London there.
the original POV is just excellent.
I gives a unique twinge to the photo.
Impeccable sharpness and detail.
Well done Deborah,

This is a gorgeous pose!
I like very much this uncommon and original POV, with that dark background that stands out so well the white pelican.
I found so enjoyable the image, with the excellent eye detail and the top hair do.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

One bird's bad hair day is another's "expensive tease".
Just marking the post for now

Hi Debz, splendid portrait with superb details and excellent sharpness, great contrast against dark BG, very well done, ciao Silvio
I love it! A wonderful and artistic image of this lovely pelican. So dramatic with the black background. The punk hair-do is wonderful - as is the look in the eye. Excellent colors, details and pose.

The "+++++" : funny title, original composition, nice subject and great pose, POV, sharpness, DOF, good exposure of white, good contrast white / dark BG, instructive complementary note...
The "-" : nothing...

The wonderful shape of the pelican against the dark background is so effective. I really like the concept of this shot. The crop may be just a tiny bit too tight at the top and right. It's just a personal opinion but I'd prefer that the plume didn't touch the edge. Exposure and sharpness look good to me.
