3 - Looks like good potential - with or without the use of the mirror in the background. The colors of the flowers and the background are not complementing the bird, the oof tulip(?) dominates the frame too much, the composition is off balance, the tail would be better included and the angle of the bird more front on, make this better in my opinion. Also some grain/noise visible.

Beautiful bird and great colors. Gradient in the background and reflection pull my attention away from the subject. Would love to see a tighter crop without the white flower.

This photo seemed a bit too washed out.

A very nice photo of a beautiful bird... and the image should do fairly well. I do believe however you might have done a tad better had you cropped out the flower on the extreme right as it competes for attention with the bird.

So pretty! I would have cropped out the white flower in the front, since it seems pretty over-exposed.

Crop out the white flower as it's drawing so much focus off the pretty bird and orange flowers. Nice pic otherwise.

Absolutely beautiful colors and sharpness, but the white flower is a bit of a distraction (IMO). Still a very nice shot.

Good shot of the bird. I think this would have been a stronger composition had you cropped out the white flower in the foreground. It's pretty blown out and out of focus so it detracts from the bird.

Great resolution would have liked it better with the full tail of the bird

lighting is a bit harsh ... the white tulip gives this a bit of an unbalanced feeling also ...

I like all the other colors in this photo and it really makes the bird stand out.

The out of focus white flower is distracting, the bird is nice. The red flowers would have looked better also with more DOF

Nice shot however the light from the flash is a little harsh

IMO this would be much stronger if white flower was cropped out, as the white is blown.

colors seem a bit blown... the flower on the right is way distracting and would have done better cropped out
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great idea, good composition, but the lighting on the flowers is a bit harsh

What a pretty picture, with all of the different colors. I wish you would have taken advantage of this challenge being an Advanced Editing challenge, and would have lightened up the white tulip, as it is SO bright, that it definitely takes my eye off of the main focus on this picture. Good job otherwise!

Pretty bird but looks oversharpened and the big tulipy flower on the right is too bright and distracts.
