Re: White Pelicans

Great shots, Eric, but on the first one, I find that my eyes keep getting drawn to the reeds rather than to the pelicans, possibly because of your DOF, Were you shooting at around f/8 or tighter? Because to put the focus on the pelicans, the reeds should be blurred more. Otherwise the eyes keep getting drawn away from the pelicans to the rest of the scenery.

In #2, it's a great shot, crisp, clear...nice capture on takeoff...the angle is kind of unusual for this shot, but understandable considering where you were probably standing. A little more background on how you were situated and what type of lens you were using to take this shot would help in determining what sort of critique we could give you.

Re: White Pelicans

Im so jelous, we only get to see them flying south for the winter and then flying north for the summer. I saw a group heading north already. Wish they would stop and rest where I could get a nice shot like that. Awesome.

Yes I was at F10 or so on the first shot....I was trying to get the BG in focus as well. I have the same image shot at F4 but I wanted to an image with everything in focus.

Comments appreciated,
