a very impressive shot IMO. Excellent sharp detail and focus, the dark background really makes this Pelican stand out vividly here and you've done a good job exposing those white feathers too, very well done!

another exceptional capture of a Pelican.
It's great to see them in England!
IMO this one is better than the last. I think we can appreciate the stark contrast between the white and pitch black BG.
The quality is once again exquisite!
The detail is amazing!
Very well composed, great POV and a classic pose.
Well done :)
Thanks for sharing,
Yikes! The pts are gone :( I'll update it tommorrow ;)

Yes, I've heard about these resident London pelicans.
Fantastic light exposure management in this shot. The levels are just right. That you also made a sharp and well composed image of this Great White Pelican to create a first class portrait makes this a top class professional-looking post.
Well done, thanks and have a good weekend,

Very impressive close capture of the Pelican with its long beak resting on its chest! Excellent sharpness and I like its plumage. You've coped really well with the sharp contrasts. I like the framing too. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla
Thanks for the 'full bill' look. Detail is great. Sharpness and colour spot on.
Nothing wrong but you could try hard cropping on right and bottom just to see what the portrait looks like with the full bill in.
