this reminds me of the picture from the grainy challenge pic 483562. Any way, I like it! I like the colors!

Good shot of the bird but I find the background a little distracting

I wasn't sure what I'll be seeing from the thumbnail but I actually really like the wacky color scheme here :) Would look great in print. I'd only suggest to selectivly slightly blur the thing white line of the buildings against the cyan/blue sky. Good luck with this shot in the challenge. (no vote)

Excellent color and detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 04:22:38 PM
looks like too much contrast for an already colorful image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:01:13 PM
those colors really pop, normally you think of feathers as soft, but these are hard and distinct, I like it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:57:20 AM
I like the almost cartoon feel of the over saturated colors. This reminds me of a photorealistic painting. :~)

I like pelican shots, we don't have them around here. I like all the detail in his wings. The colours are vibrant too.

Bright and colorful photo of a wonderful bird.

Just right. Not too much software doctoring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:54:14 PM
nice textures
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:29:29 PM
I like the shot--but it seems very over saturated.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 07:45:29 PM
a bit overprocessed - just my opp
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 06:20:02 PM
Wow, what a great capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 06:15:43 PM
Beautiful image of the bird, but I find the bright colours of the background a bit distracting. For me this one might work better in black and white.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 05:19:08 PM
Wow....colors.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 03:29:16 PM
Great detail on the feathers, but I think the background is too overpowering.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:56:23 AM
Great colors, the thumbnail on the page displaying multiple photos just jumped out at me. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 03:16:10 AM
Blimey, that's bright and colourful - flamboyant, even!

Very nice detail and color!

03/13/2009 08:00:12 PM
nice post processing, I also like how you blurred the background
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:16:54 PM
colors are a bit over saturated for my taste, but the focus is nice and sharp and the composition is good ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 05:02:35 PM
The composition is good, but it seems as if it was over processed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:37:10 AM
I like the color treatment in this, it blasts the eye. The background may be a bit too colorful for this images own good though.

03/13/2009 09:56:35 AM

03/13/2009 05:05:18 AM
The change in background colors is a little too obvious. the pelican capture is nice. 6

03/12/2009 09:50:37 PM
Nice pelican - those are some goofy birds - processing a bit heavy for my taste.

03/12/2009 10:24:40 AM
well composed image, but oversaturated, and because of that the poor pelican gets lost in the colorfull background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 04:50:52 AM
way oversaturated. other than that very good capture, perfect focus and DOF. would surely score higher with natural colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:36:49 AM
Good pic but a little too saturated for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:26:43 AM
wow, the DOF here and also the colors are amazing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:03:55 PM
Shot looks overprocessed, but you have wonderful colors, the DOF is great and the colors in the background add life to the shot. He's got his eye on you!

I like this one but the colors seem to be a little to extreme for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:12:45 PM
colors are a bit bright but I like them, it all flows together well
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 04:08:45 PM
Saturation seems a bit high. One humble suggestion is to try saturating selective colors on this picture only - play around some. Maybe orange and blue boosted, everything else flat or reduced?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:55:35 PM
Striking, but too much color saturation for my taste.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:38:14 AM

A little too saturated for my taste. Nice pelican though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:31:59 AM
The background colors tend to steal from the main subject's impact. Nice shot though.
