    I love it. Not only the bird, but the plant is fantastic. BG color match with the bird makes a great effect too.

    I think the plant and the BG works together to make this image special. Very very nice!

    Very nicely presented. The only I would have changed is that I would have taken the BG flower out of the setup, but I love how the other three are placed. Great bird, super BG.

    Beautiful shot Tom, pity about the flowere head in the centre but the bird is great. I may just consider lifting the dark plumage on the head a little bit.

    WOW! This is nice!
    Love ,love the flowers and the vertical lines of the image.
    Was this a set-up? If it was then I agree with Daniel's comment about the OOF flower but if shot in the field then I am fine with it.
    You could clone it out. I would clone out the 2 gold dots to the right of OOF flower.

    Super nice, I agree with the above comments and i think an overall clean up as suggested, along with maybe burning the stems slightly to tone down the brightness may be helpful. Another gem...

    Thanks for suggestions. I will lower the highlights on the stems more because i can see now they are a bit too hot.
    Yes this was a setup but honestly i kind of like this OOF flower because it makes it look more natural, maybe it shouldn't be behind the front one.

    Everything has already been said, lovely setup and a nice result with the only weak point being the pacing of the OOF flower.

    I think the OOF flower would look better if it wasn't behind the stem of the other flower. Lovely details, and very pleasing to the eye.
