    He's really pretty. I've only seen white pelicans.

    Pretty shot!
  4. Thanks Linda.
    I think he's a young one. The older guys have more raggedy feathers.
  5. Thanks Debbie!

    Here's a slightly darker rendering. Better?

    Heh...nice attempts to save the shot Fred. It's tough when the sun is shining and there is white in your shot to not blow the highlights on the white parts. I like the pose though and the crop.
  12. Thanks Les!
    I used Capture NX2
  13. Thanks Dave!
    The histogram showed the highlights in tact, so I was able to tone it down without smearing the details.
  14. Wow, a brown pelican named leroy, Great shot!
