    It looks very good from my point of view, the bird fits perfectly with the background. Maybe, I would have cut a little from the bottom.

    TFS John!

    Well done, John. Like this pose and the perch. Beautifully colored background complimenting some of the tones in the feathers.

    The BG you're getting for these guys is killer John and another nice portrayal of the claw grip on the perch. I also like the fine feather detail you're showing. This fellow has a very satisfied look about him.

    Excellent John, I like the format and the bird's plumage looks great. I could also imagine a landscape version would look good too.

    Just a little lower in the frame would have been perfect. I love the matching messy perch and back feathers. Great head turn too.
