I had 3 choices for submission and took days working out which one to enter .....All worthy in their own right, BUT this one is the right place at the right time kind of shot that the chances of capturing it again would be slim to none. As soon as I saw it my first words were oh Group Hug ! The only thing that bothers me is the horizon.

This was one of my favorites, even if it does look kind of surreal.. or maybe *because* it looks kind of surreal.

wow. They look so fake. This look like a disney animation movie like antz or something. I've seen these flying in Mexico and call them terydactyls. They are so prehistoric looking. Excellent capture. Are they really real? Excellent work. 9 - good luck in the challenge!

i really love the colors here, though it might have benefited from just a little more contrast.

Great shot ! I love how you have captured this grouping, the background adds to the ambiance of this image. A top pick.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

whoa, did you apply any filters? The beaks almost look fake. Very cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful shot! Could do with a bit of extra contrast and colour saturation just to bring out the sky a bit more.

This is so beautiful. The colors are amazing. It almost looks like a painting.

Nice composition with a lot of movement and interest.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/13/2005 09:42:24 PM
Terrific picture. Great colors in the sky and sea, the relative dullness of the background really setting off the pretty black & white of the birds. Great composition as well.

Excellent sharpness as these guys are always such clowns to photograph. The hues work great and had you burned more detail into the clouds, it would have balanced the shot better. You will do very well. Good luck!

Dramatic capture of pelicans. Like the tone used in this photograph. Excellent composition. Very well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh I like this alot. Wish the sky had more contrast. Is the sunset reflecting pink on their feathers, or is that software?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very delicate colouring, the bills almost look pencilled in. Very appealing despite the skewed horizon!

love the photo,and love the title too 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is surreal, like a painting or cartoon. Would have preferred a leveled horizon line, otherwise I think it's prefect. Very nice muted color tones.

Goes so well with the title. Most imaginative.
