Brown Pelican in Galveston Harbor

Brown Pelican in Galveston Harbor

Just down the dock from the tall ship of yesterday there were a group of Pelicans sunning and feeding. Pelicans are, of course, almost too easy. The 465mm equivalent of the Sony H50 is more than long enough for satisfying pelican shots. This handsome fellow was actively feeding along the length of a long dock.

Sony DSC H50 at full tel. F5.6 @ 1/640th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

In Lightroom, I pulled the highlights back with a bit of Recovery, shifted the black point slightly to the right to intensify the colors, added Clarity and Vibrance and used the Portrait sharpen preset.

From Galveston 2009.

And just for fun.
