This is just so fun to look at and the colors are perfect. My one little gripe might be that you cant see their feet
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i just dont like the cut off flippers on the birds, otherwise this is great

outstanding shot - the colors and textures on the feathers and the almost cartoon like faces is just fantastic
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2009 03:00:54 PM
Love this portrait. HDR just a bit too obvious for my sensibilities.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2009 01:15:01 PM
LOL funny title:) excellent color in the birdie's eyes. in the feathers too. contrast is great. makes the birds just pop out of the page. how close were you?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2009 11:49:15 AM
I love pelican shots. Great detail and clarity although the haloing around the rear birds bothers me a bit, if I have to nit-pick.
