WOW thanks for all the great comments and votes it's been 12 months since I ribboned so it is a great thrill and not really expected with this shot.
I was lucky enough to capture these 10 pelicans in a spot that I knew where they settle in at sunset but it took me three visits to actully get 10 in a row.

i don't know...the comp and subject matter is somewhat subpar...However, the "meet challenge", colors and seredipity of this photo win out.

the birds in silhouette become letters of some long lost ancient language. 8

How did you place the decoys all the way out there and not leave tracks. Just kidding . great color-7-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2006 04:53:20 PM
Beautiful light/ colour and what an interesting row of subjects for the silhouette!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2006 03:17:19 PM
wow, what a perfect opportunity, love the colors, the reflections and the black silhouettes, hmm, can't think of anything I'd change, 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2006 06:35:20 AM
I love the colors and exposure in your shot. I wish the birds were a bit more off center (Rule of thirds). Still this shot made it in my top 3. Nice work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/12/2006 12:57:06 AM
this will be in the top 10, or should be anyway. great job :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2006 07:46:54 PM
This would not work as well as it does for me if that one wasn't gargling.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2006 01:42:03 PM
What an amazing capture!!! What are the odds: 10 beautiful ducks in a beautiful sunset (or sunrise) scene right when you need them! Congratulations. Definitely one of my favorites here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2006 01:20:20 PM
Should be a winner
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2006 11:05:56 AM
Love this one, as the colors are to die for.....Just stunning.....
Definately a "10" from me

Good capture,and well colored..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/10/2006 02:22:09 PM
I like this, but the colours are a little unnatural for my taste - I'd like to see the orignal (pre-photoshop) image. Still voting high for you though as it is a great picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/10/2006 11:03:19 AM
nicely done. maybe a little too much sharpen, the outline halo on the horizon gives it away.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/10/2006 09:12:22 AM
Wow what a lucky find!! I think if I were to change anything, I'd have cropped it differently, using the rule of thirds, instead of the line of pelicans cutting the image practically in half.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/10/2006 07:22:29 AM
perfect...I would have given this a title...titles get more marks...I love the one with the mouth open...hope this does really well for you
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/10/2006 02:41:49 AM
I'll just give "1" on this one... "1" for each bird :) 10.
