    The camera was set to max saturation if that helps. I took a better look at it and the blue is the slightly cool white-balance. I guess what I was trying to say that the feathers were morevibrant and penetrated lookingin bright sunlight, not incandescent. Sorry about the confusion.


    Here is a de-saturated version.

    Again a little to saturated.


    Please, I invite critique. So don't be afraid to bash me over the head with a 2x4!


    No wories,

    I really like the composition and the way they're flying in formation. If you get another chance try using a flash or maybe higher isoto illuminate the under side of the wings. Was this a big crop? It's a little noisy and it doesn't have the detail I would expect from the 7D.


    It's good shot to make a painting or drawing type effect because the composition is strong.

    The birds are really dark, especiallythe one on the right...another overcast day? Maybe flash would help? So how are you liking Florida? Seeing lots of other variety of birds or just pelicans?

    Good points Joel. It is a slight crop, but not much. The problem is that after I resize and sharpen my photos just lose their pop and sharpness. I'll see if I can fix it.


    Denise, actually it was a pretty nice day (blue sky, no clouds!). But it was late afternoon and what you're seeing are some just nasty shadows from a building. The Pelicans have almost metallic silver wings, they are a bit too dark in my image. Type "brown pelican" on flickr and you'll get an idea of what they look like in ideal lighting conditions.

    Well, It's great! I still have 6 more days here; and I am seeing tons more than pelicans. I'll post a few more a bit later. Still trying not to hijack this thread. Which I started [*-)]
