Good Evening Manisha,
Its a difficult shot under the given conditions.
The weather seems to be cloudy and you had to use the flash from a distance to illuminate the pack of pelicans.
A few ducks are interested in the photo-shoot, while others are busy in self dressing, and preparing themselves for the next shoot.
Are you satisfied with your camera ? I doubt. Powershot Tx1 is a nice cam, but you are aiming high and I am of the conviction that you need to upgrade your gear.
Anghsuman , one of masters on Trek Earth also hails from Delhi,and can be of immense help.

this pretty flock of pelicans looks wonderful in the green mist. I don't know the reason for this green cast - be it improper color balance or some special light conditions - but it fits here really well creating a lovely atmosphere. Nice capture.
Thanks and best wishes

Good capture. The way the pelicans are placed in a bunch but all with different attitudes, and mostly busy in their favourite job, setting their feathers is good to see. Their reflection on green water is nice.
A pleasing scene. Nice moment captured.
In detail I saw you used flash. In these type of outdoor shots try to take advantage of natural light, that's better option I think. Due to flash the background become a bit misty.
Good luck. keep clicking.

Namaste Manisha Jain,
This is a beautiful photo of the white palicants. It makes me think of children bathing in the river together. Seems they are preening and taking care of their plumage. Love the soft tone and pale yellow pink tone on the pelicants Very love shot with good composition and nice colors.

I would watch the white balance. Remove the unnatural green tint. Increase contrast. Moment is beautiful. All the best.
