We found one of the tiny islands of Thousand Island Nature Center crowded with pelicans.

  2. Neat composition – I like the bands of color and the way you chose the shape of the frame around the subject. Very nice.

  8. wonderful and beautiful photo, I’ve never seen a Pelican in real life, must be amazing and their chatter what is it like I wonder?

  9. The processing is lovely, but it’s the composition that makes this: the way it’s stratified, the horizontal layers of alternating tones, along with the dynamic tension of the varying geometry of each layer.

  10. I like how the line of birds coincides with the straightness of the shoreline. Is this the St Lawrence River?
