A surprising background but it kind of works for me!

Nice portrait, though it is a bit too high-key for my tastes. The colors around the beak and neck look washed out.

Nice job of handling the cross-hatch of a cage to provide a very complimentary background. Good color and detail on the bird.

Slightly over exposed

Colors are a little garish, to my eyes, and the image appears overexposed but I do like what you've done with post processing to make the background fence more pleasing. I really like the way the fence's pattern compliments the pattern in the bird's feathers. Also, good capture of the fierce gaze.

Fierce looking bird. A bit bright but a good composition.

It's unfortunate that we can see the pattern of the fence in the background. Also, the feathers are lacking in detail from overexposure or too much contrast or a little of both. It's much too bright.

I don't care for the editing done to this image.
