Good lighting and tones of black and white are good. I feel like the position of the pelican's head towards me is that he is staring me down. The coloration of light and dark by its eyes makes it look angry and aggressive (like he is furrowing his brows). I could read it that he is proud in the way that he is looking down upon me - like he is better than I. The 'secret' part of the title is really hard to portray/represent for it is something that is not necessarily tangible. Not sure how one would effectively represent that in the image...maybe something in the background that is hazy/mysterious in shape????
