Exposure: ISO:800 f/11 1/640 300 mm (35mm equivalent)
- Pretty shot, good focus. Crop tighter because the bird is the star.
- It is a nice image of a pelican in flight. The wings are spread and sharp from tip to tip. I would suggest cropping a little tighter. The extra habitat at the top of the fram does not add to the image. Its good for the bird to have space to fly into but less would be good and focus more attention on the main subject, the pelican.
- More attention is needed to show the uniqueness of the pelican, which is, also, rarely seen flying; Suggestion: crop a square around the bird w/a little more space on the right. Very good background, but more than needed. Great photo catch !
