6 - Like it, but, Criticism; seems to be either gamma issues or jpeg loss in the dark feathers (and partly the beak too), difficult to discern, might be post processing, not sure. The head and beak are nice and 'sharp', but not sure on the choice of 'composition' or crop, but obviously depends what you had to work with. edit:wording
