These are Flamingos from my country. They were sleeping @ noon, and they have a peculiar way of doing that: standing in one foot and hiding their faces under their wings, so they can breath fresher air.

For this:
-waited for the flamingos
-corrected exposure
-noise reduction

The tree on the left is distracting, but otherwise this is a nice composition. Not really red, but in the family.

the dark area in the upper left is very distracting and takes away from what is otherwise an interesting perspective and image. the weight of that area, combined with the dead center framing of the in focus subject makes the right/upper-right negative space feel very unbalanced.

Red???? Lovely shot, but they don't seem to fit the "red" challenge, except, perhaps by name????

Nice Dof, good composition. The black thing on the left is kind of distracting, and a color shift would have been nice these are more of a pink IMO.
