    Particularly like that first one. The only thing I would do is clone out that light immediately behind its head.

    Re: Another Pelican shot

    good example of decent bird in flight shots,

    Could just be me getting old and stuff, but in your first photo, the focus looks a little soft. was this image cropped? additionally to Closei's feedback, I'd use an adjustment brush and reduce the white/highlights on the boat behind the bird. exposure is good.

    Re: Another Pelican shot

    The first image is not cropped, I just got very lucky with the position of the bird.
    I actually posted the wrong shot as I had removed those annoying bright spots.
    I think the bird is in quite good focus but the background is OOF due to apperture.
    Thanks for the comments, they are all appreciated.
