I think thats more sad than ironic. But its a nice picture! :)

The paw on the cage makes it really look like a jailed bird or jailbird. Good work.

Beautiful colors in the feathers of the bird. I really stands out from the background. Great contrast in the shot. The contrast on the feathers of the bird really give you a sense of the layering of the feathers. Also the reflections of the light and shadows in the cage really make it look 3D and helps give it a good depth of field.

I love the contrast of color/grey.
10/03/2003 12:35:00 PM
Great color, I like the detail.

this is SO sad

This is a good capture and strikes emotion into the viewer. I can't help but feel sorry for it. I love how it's looking at the camera. I'm usually ont a big fan of borders but I like this one here. I'm wondering if a red (same color as the bird) neatline would add anything to this?

Congratulations on being one of the few who know what irony means, while making a very visually attractive photo!

Precisely why I'm not a bird owner

Well shot, composed. I like the contrast of the brightly colored bird to its dull surroundings - the colors match the substance of the picture, the mood.

beautiful photo... 'free bird' would have also been a good title for this, as much as i hate that song :) = 10

nice closeup...I like the color and clarity

The Macaw is beautiful and it's sad when they are caged. Nice colors, good focus on the bird and the fence. Love the cropping too. One of my favorites in this challenge

Okay - I can see the irony in that - and it's a nice shot
10/01/2003 08:18:24 AM
awwww .. pretty bird :) nice photo
10/01/2003 06:49:44 AM
Nice pic and composition. I'm not sure I get the title but that's probably not your fault, just stoopid me :-)

This is the best photo I've seen so far but I don't find it at all ironic.
