Eyes of the Storm by Thomas-Koidhis Eyes of the Storm by Thomas-Koidhis
! Had to do a double take when I signed on and saw 1,800 messages in my inbox. Thank you *majcy92 and ^Anoya for the suggest and DD. :heart:

This was taken in a single exposure and, at most, has a curves layer and a saturation decrease. The 1/10 of a second shutter speed let in some nice blur with the rapids, but was fast and steady enough (on a tripod) to get relatively still and sharp Pelicans. I love that you can see the closest Pelican ruffling its wings as a result of just enough motion blur.

I make my photos in the first place for my own personal discovery on one hand, and on the other to help others in some small way to connect with and understand their world. I love hearing what people feel and what they have to say in response. So I'm honored by all of your input. If I don't answer your comment, it's because I had nothing to add, or simply because I am blonde and missed it. I do my best to read each one.

Thank you


Edits: dropped saturation, more natural color, bigger size, border removed, new title just cuz.
