Nice picture of the Pelican.I think I would crop some more from the right side.   Posted: 11/11/2020 12:30:23

Love the pelican and the action that adds interest and impact. I cropped tighter and increased the saturation to bring out more yellow and orange. Whether you decide to crop or not, etc. it is a very nice image.   Posted: 11/15/2020 14:28:01

This a very nice photo. I WOULD CROP FROM THE RIGHT AND BOTTOM. Blurry refections are not my thing. I think the saturation helped and some contrast would also help.   Posted: 11/15/2020 15:30:28

Thank you all for your comments. I was also debating if I should crop the image tighter.   Posted: 11/19/2020 14:57:04

Very nice image. I agree with the suggestions and like both remakes which gives two different, but effective looks. At first thought I wanted to see more of the ripples and the bird's reflection in the water but after seeing the first remake I changed my mind. But it is something you can play with for a totally different look, a more artistic look.   Posted: 11/20/2020 11:15:21

This is an excellent photograph. Cropping and amount of saturation, etc. are personal preference.   Posted: 11/30/2020 23:03:37
