Nice capture and processing. Would have been a ten from me but I just felt it was a bit cramped in the frame. But a 9 ain't bad!

one crazy looking bird and a beautiful image
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm a big fan of the peli's! This one has crisp detail with just enough blur to give the feeling of motion and not the typical freeze frame photo where the bird looks like he's hanging by an invisible wire. 10.

This is a fantastic image and one of my favorites of the week. The texture of the pelican's feathers really make this image pop nicely for me. The slight motion blur at the tips of the wings also add a nice feeling of motion to the image. Seeing this photo makes me wish I lived in an area where pelicans were available to me! Excellent work... I hope to see this one near the top of the list at the end of the week...
