Shez, I think that it should have a small note on the back of this post card informing all visitors to wear a wide brimmed hat :)

I just like to say, I think I rushed this one, and let my heart override my brain. I now realize that I have overprocessed this postcard, so thank you for your support and comments.

The pelican is alright as a subject. Looks like some detail has been lost in the white areas of the bird either from overexposing or pushing the contrast too high perhaps. The pelican seems to be in focus just fine, but the photo overall seems oversharpened. Positioning of your subject within the frame is good. The text message is "ok". All JMO of course. :D Good luck in the challenge.

very wierd looking picture. Has a very plastic quality to it. Too much contrast adjustment maybe?

A little too bright on the feathers.

Something about the saturation and/or colors doesn't look quite right.

This picture would be more appealing if the detail of the white feathers had not been blown out. Remember to darken the exposure when shooting white in intense light. The details in the dark areas can always be restored in post processing. Also, the water seems over sharpened, which causes it to compete with the bird.

A nice idea for a postcard, but something isn't quite right with the photo - contrast too high, and overly bright. The whites on the pelican are also over-exposed which detracts from the overall impression. On the plus side, nicely composed.
