    Timing perfect. Well composed, good sharpness. Maybe a bit overexposed white parts, but that is hard to avoid. In my favorites.

    You couldn't have asked them to pose any better - great capture! I think a bit of a colour boost would work well here.

    Great pose and well exposed. This should do well!

    Another one of my favorites. Only distracting thing is that tree stump in front, from what can tell no avoiding it. One of 3 or 4 worthy of first.

    Nice lines on the birds but that tree in between them spoils it for me.

    I remember these pelicans very well. They didn't pose so well for me. Did you think of removing the white tree trunk?

    That tree in the background makes the shot. Such an avante garde approach and completely counter-intuitive. Just shows that you can break the rules to make a good shot a great one. (Except then you broke another rule and got that foreground stick to amputate the feet of the bird to the right - too bad. That one, I would fix by cloing in the feet from the other bird (copy cut flip paste and work with light and shadow). It would be worth the effort here. Totally funky.

    Don't know how you got 'em to post like this, but it's a winner image!

    very good detail in the birds the tree trunk does't help the picture but you have to work with what you get

    A fine subject for the challenge. Looks like a bit of a lighting challenge with direct sunlight versus shadows.
