Thank you for your comments. Just to let you know to. I cropped the original photo down to this. Just goes to show that there are always ways to improve upon the original.

Excellent composition - cropped or not, great eye and execution.

This should be on your wall.

I think pelicans are THE coolest birds - like something out of the Stone Age! I like how your photo shows them both facing the viewer, and in profile. Fascinating both ways!! Congrats on this photo finalist, and good luck!!

Wow, Thanks for all the comments & congrats guys. Your encouragement gives me new strength. I just got back from a photoshoot out West. From Vegas to The Grand Canyon and everything in between. I only took about 2000+ new photos. So theres bound to be a few good ones in there somewhere. LOL. Watch for them!
Take care and God bless,
