Pity it feels so unbalanced but I missed the better composition and didn't want to crop and ruin the flow of the background.

I stared at this for a very long time. The pelican is one of my favourite birds such a majestic creature with that big huge beak. I'm sure if it could speak it would boast very proud things :-)

How lovely! I nearly entered a pelican shot - glad I didn't as this is way better. 10

Lovely setting for this awesome bird. It's nice to see one in the water. Thanks.

Feels way oversharpened. It needs some softness. Love the composition though.

Two great photos here, with each one getting lost in the other. If I scroll so the white flowers are out of the shot I love it. As is, I lose the pelican and would almost rather have had you lose the reflection to give me more up top. There's so much nice here but it's not coming together nicely for me.
