Breathtaking and stunning. The sharpness and clarity are eye-popping and I love the focus on the head and beak.

Sharpness, the light and texture on the feathers, the contrast to the background, the diagonal of the beak - this is perfection!

It looks rather... intimidating.

KeldBach Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2010
Actually, the Pelican was desperately trying to get airborne, but its clipped wing prevented it from doing so. See this: [link]

This is amazing, the kinds of textures you managed to capture here almost make this photograph look like a painting. The contrast between the dark water and the white feathers is stunning, and I love the line that the beak makes diagonally across the composition.

It never got airborne?
Reply
:iconkeldbach:
KeldBach Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2009
No, it didn't. I never saw any of them trying to fly. They could easily get away if they wanted too, since they were living in a completely open pond. But I suppose they were feeling quite comfortably at this place.
