By dumb luck I caught this shot while at the park with my son. I wasn't thinking challenge (shame on me) while at the park, but reviewing the shots later at home I noticed the triangle shaped crown, the space between the neck and bill, and the general shape of the neck, and thought.... :)

Nice. Average composition though. I don't know, others may like the comp, but I'd rahter have it uncentered.

Decent job. 7

Colors are great! Beautiful isolation of the bird from the background. Triangle well seen.

Very nice. I would suggest to crop at the head. Bigger image size with just the head, the eye is very impressing.

There a little over-sharpen feel to this image.
but I like the colors and the triangle is a very nice catch.

Great colors , focus and DOF. The vertical light yellow line above the head is just a little distracting.

this is really nice with creative use of triangle, good isolation via DOF, and certainaly appealing colors ... only minor con is the difficult white/black contrasts of the bird's head .. nevertheless a top entry 10 IMO

Well spotted! A peacock profile is the last thing I would have expected in the triangle challenge and I like the colours in this one. Nicely focused, fits the challenge, perfectly exposed... an 8 from me.

Best of luck for this challenge!
