That is a cracking shot, Sammy! I love it!SmileSmileSmile
Straight down the beak - no messin'!!
Perhaps you could consider a square crop to reduce the greenery on the left?
Best wishes,

Omg thank you so much ****, I am flabbergasted at getting a UA.... I didn't think about cropping it as it was just for a bit of fun... But I will have a go and upload as a variant on this one Smile

Thank you so much again, much appreciated

Talk about "looking down your nose"! Great image and pretty sure the words of wisdom re a crop should result in an even better one.

Version 2 is the cropped shot, wasn't sure whether I cropped it enough but it definitely looks better than the first version Grin

The bad hair do, "What bad hair do?" You need to see mine after a seizure, I look like and feel like a bag of washing...

P.S. Two superb images GrinGrinGrin

I can agree with you there Nathan as I have Epilepsy and no all about bad hair afterwards!

I think the Pelican's hair is definitely unruly in this shot though! A bit of Brylcreem should sort it out! Grin

Wonderful feather detail in this cracking capture. The cropped version is definitely better.

Hi Gareth,

Your photo has such an atmospheric feel, the colours are fabulous and the mist settling over the circle, give such a mystical feeling!

Thank you for your vote Grin
