Maker's notes: 

It was a beautiful morning on the Atlantic Ocean. I could hardly believe my eyes when these Pelicans came flying in a formation that accented the sunrise.

Judges' comments: 
Lovely complementary colors; the line of birds complements the sunset line; would be interesting to have a panoramic crop with one-third water, two- thirds sky
