Critique Club:

This is a very cute set-up with bright, cheerful colors. The little piece of green leaves is a nice touch.

While I do like the white background, the lighting seems a bit harsh or the levels/curves were overly adjusted. The hard shadows are a little distracting and could be softened a bit by moving your subjects farther away from the background.

The close crop on the right is effective in conveying the sense of urgency on the part of the bird to leave the scene.

I noticed the processing steps in your comments. I'm not sure if you've listed them in the order in which you performed the steps but if you did, I would suggest cropping and resizing before you sharpen. Sharpening should be the last step in processing.

Good luck in future challenges!

Wow this is a funny shot. Just the expression on the parrots face cracks me up. The shadows around the cat are a bit distracting though.

Very unique, cute and funny. I like the stretch of doing something like this and respect it greatly, you most likely won't get the score you deserve. :( I love the colors and cats facial expression. Good job
