    Pelicans in flight

    These are couple of pelican photos I took recently. As suggested by Dave, the photos have been downsized and sharpened before uploading in Tiny Pic. Thanks for viewing, C&C most welcome.

    Hello, Bedanta. Very nice set. My favourite is number 1, due to the good level of details brought, but I liked them all. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Bedanta,

    These are very good - I prefer #3 because you have a group of three, all pretty sharp.

    If #2 has a failing, it is that the lead bird is outside the DoF (and also may have been moving differently to the others) and is a bit softer.

    Excellent work, with good exposure and focus,

    #3 is also my favourite. I especially like how you timed it perfectly so that the bird's eye appears between the feathers of the other bird. Well done!

    Yes Dave, I wanted to crop out the lead bird, but was not quite sure.

    Sorry to disappoint you Tony. I never visualized it that way, forget about timing it so perfectly. It all happened by fluke, action photography is all about luck for a beginner like me.

    Hi Pinaki, at last somebody in favour of #2. After seeing Dave's comment, I was about to reject it.
