Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D; 1/500s, f/11, ISO 160, focal length 55mmThis is a pelican flying skyward away from me. I think this silhouette shows off its long wingspan. Photo taken at The Pier in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA.

Wonderfull, Dot. They are such fantastic birds. This is such a neat image.
Thanks so much, Margaret. I didn’t know what to do with this photo…the details weren’t great, but I guess it looks okay as a silhouette with the cross-process coloring. Just experimenting!
What you did worked. Just thinking outloud and not sure it would work at all, bur what about trying to do it in black and white?
I will work on that! Thanks for the suggestion!
Well, I decided I liked the original coloring after all! I will still try the b/w, but I’m too tired tonight. :-))
Wonderful silhouette shot, Dot!
Thanks very much, Monnie!
I love this shot, silhouette in flight really makes this a unique image. Nicely done!
Thanks, Bonnie. I’m always amazed at the wingspan of birds like this.
