    I'll second that string of smiley's. Amazing picture and color/sharpness. I'd have this sucker printed out pretty large and on my wall if I ever get a shot like that.

    Great, cute cuddly and a really cool image to boot. I love the texture in the feathers, the black and white of the whole image with the dash of orange. It may have helped to have a little more space to the right but it looks like it would be awkward to see the detail in this resolution if you put more in and you might loose the detail. If I was going to print it for my wall I might be tempted to put a fair bit more black space to the right and dodge the bottom and far left a bit so as the white does not bisect the edge at all.

    Another beautifully shot pelican. Great detail in the feathers, and I like the light. [I've gotta agree with Matt-L, it looks like it's wearing a toupee or something! :lol: ]
