Lots of parrots this challenge! This is a handsome devil. Wish the lighting was a little better so his blue and yellow feathers would pop more, but outdoor lighting is a tricky thing.

good focus , excellent colors captured, but the background is the weakness. IN this situations, you really need to move around to get the simplest plain background or zoom in close to isolate., 6

Beautiful vibrant colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the sharpness and the detail in the wings. I don't like how the feet are cut off mid-feet. I would crop this a bit more to avoid that. The tree curve matching his head's curve is beautiful.

How I wish for a nice smooth green background here but very nice detail and colors of the bird.

03/12/2009 10:26:10 AM
I think with a slightly different composition and w/o the blown sky at the top it might score a bit higher.

03/12/2009 09:07:26 AM
Why do they always have cracked beaks?
