I LOVE your pelican shots, excellent work! Aren't they fascinating creatures? I want to try to get a good shot of them doing their 1000 mph nosedive into the ocean.

Wonderful shot anyway and a 7+ score and new PB isn't to be sniffed at.

Great looking portrait and really liking the PP if i was being super picky, the horizon isn't quite straight that said a solid 9

Cool shot and I like the processing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/30/2009 04:28:45 PM
Awesome! I'd love to know what you did to this in post processing because it just doesn't look natural. I like it a lot, though. I just noticed, however, that the horizon seems slightly slanted - higher on the right than the left.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/30/2009 02:04:38 PM
Oh wow, gorgeous colors, good job, image seems a bit noisy, 8.

Love this. It's a real portrait. I get a great feel of the individual from looking into the eye. Beautiful!

It's as if he's posting. Love the eye!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Killer blue eye, did you post-edit that in, or was it really that blue?

Are you the Zohar? If not, you have pleased the Zohar! (See forum for more information)

12/28/2009 06:02:41 PM
Wow, this is nice. I have an idea who this may belong to, can't wait to see if I'm right.The advanced editing really made it pop. I don't do this often but from what I've seen so far, this is a 10.
