Dalmatian pelicans in lake Kerkini
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Pelecanus crispus. A colonial bird. Lives in fresh brackish lakes, marshes and shallow coastal waters. Here, in lake Kerkini's western shore. The lake was formed in 1932, when a dam was built on Strymon river. It is the wildlife-richest habitat in Greece and one of the ten water-reserves protected by Ramsar Treaty.|

I like the picture. I always tried to see Pelecans when bicycling in Northern Greece. The sharpness of the pic is good, the backround in the off, the yellow tinge gives it atmosphere. But I find the picture wanting: the composition. I tried to make a proposition in a workshop version. See whether you like the result.
My best regards,
A beautiful capture of this group of different pelicans over the lake. But the composition by Mr. Dietrich looked much betters. Anyway thanks a lot for sharing.
