CommentI composed this image for a front-on portrait of the pelican's bill and head as it waited for an easy feed of fish at a local jetty, and exposed for that classic white-on-white effect. The composition uses the long bill as a leading line up to those big, dark eyes, instantly engaging eye contact with the viewer.
