photoblog image Pelican

Pelican

 

One more image taken in the Zoo of Antwerp. This one is also a typical snapshot. Most of them are to throw away but I liked this one a lot. I didn't try or wait the whole in the zoo to get or work on great images.

 

 

TECH-INFO: one RAW-file converted into a TIFF file. Cropped into 3/4 format because it fits better. Just like in the previous image I used various masked adjustment layers in Photoshop. The background is darkened because it was not interesting anyway. The pelican is made a bit brighter.

Great detail... I'll never get that close to a pelican to see how beautiful it is. Thanks for the chance.
Superb detail and composition, Paul. I would be very happy to take `snapshots` like this! (:o)
