    Very nice Geoffrey....Nice feather detail and colours. I like your chosen crop and the BG shows the bird well.

    Way to go Geoffrey, you did very well. Wonderful wing position, and tail spread. They are such a beautiful bird.

    I think you could sharpen a tad more, but a nice pose and nice light.

    Sweet light. Like the pose and the look on the bird. The darker background is nice as well.
