This was a good challenge ... several actually. Moving subjects, high contrast between subjects and background as well as getting nice reflections. The biggest must have been the extreme contrast between the almost white pelicans and the almost black pond.

Pictures were taken at the pelicans' pond at Emmen Zoo on one of those summer visits ... where else can you find pelicans in a controlled environment? Images made with Canon A-1, FD135/2.8 and KodakPro 160 NC rated at 125.
Cleaning up of the ponds of feathers was done on one of the images using PS. Must make a point to visit these pelicans again soon.
