    Superb shot Sabyasachi. Lovely action captured. Great to see details in the shadowed head as well. Did you dial a positive EC?

    Abhishek,
    Forgot to mention. I had dialled a -1/3rd EV. I was in evaluative metering. I was in a boat and shooting something else, and this happened all of a sudden on the other side. Ihad to turn my considerable bulk and somehow could capture this.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi

    Nice acrobatics.I agree that this kind of things happend suddenly, so one doesn't get time to dial the proper settings.Water droplets have enhanced the image.TFS

    Didn't know Pelicans could drink this way! Your reflexes are quite good Given the situation, this is a good image..and the water droplets look nice.

    Wow you captured the moment superbly. As this one dived behind our back , didn't have time to check the settings. I have to check if I got this. Thanks for sharing.

    Excellent. Can't ask for more on a reflex shot. Wud have been nice if a little more of the head was visable.
