  2. Perfect title that works both literally and figuratively.
  3. Thank you Mike!
  4. Wonderful image, Dossy!
    Excellent use of shallow depth of field. Makes for an impressive 3D effect.
  5. Great use of a OOF background.
  6. Much appreciated, Bart!
    Thanks so much, Nick!

    Nailed it very nice. I might have cropped the bottom part out.
  8. I agree with Dudley. The bottom takes away from the pelican IMHO.
  9. Thank you, Dudley and Allan! Here's a cropped version. Maybe instead of "Above it All" I could just call it "Soaring!"

  10. Though I prefer the second image, I appreciate that the two images tell very different stories. Depending on the story being told, one image does a better job than the other one.

  11. Thanks for your input, Mike! I agree completely. I do like the crop better, and the first one can definitely be used for a different story.

  14. I agree with Mike, both very nice Dossy!
