Despite ADVERSE lighting condition plus the mist you did a lovely job in presenting these two species ... the Pelicans & the Cormorants.
Concise but EXACT notes!!!

Beautiful shot of this group of Pelicans in good sharpness and details. Misty sort of BG showing other birds relaxing is very good. Thanks for sharing,

Congratulations on this fabulous scene Bharatpur sanctuary ... The background vanished; with silhouettes of cormorants perched on partially submerged branches; It is very poetic.

Hello Pierre,
The soft lighting as well as the tiny bit of haze adds much to the overall image, giving it a quiet almost mystical look. The pelicans behave as if you were not even present, as they preen themselves and appear to be in a relaxed pose. A very attractive photo and a pleasure to view. Well done!!

Hello Pierre,
What a nice atmosphere. Very beautiful soft colours in a great composition.

Hi Pierre,

you deserve the points for this stylisch picture. The composition (light-dark, background, proportions) reminds me of a Dutch painter's masterpiece. Great!

My best regards, Dieter
