    Ditto David's comments, although the light looks a little harsh...I'd take the contrast down a tad and add a little room to the LHS. TFS

    Well done Moe, quite the favorable combo to shoot with. I echo Paul's comments

    Very fine detail and interesting colors. There is a soft yellow strip against the top of the wing.

    The bird is nice and sharp with good detail. Like the pose as well. I can see where you cloned along the top of the wing.

    Love the bird -- especially the gold feathers on the back, and the sharpness. The. partly-raised wing, the perch, and the image design? Not so much.
    Good catch by John on sloppy post-processing.

    Great detail on the subject, but he's way to tight in the frame. There is also so funny business going on above his wing, some sort of local adjustment or cloning artifact? Light looks a bit steep/harsh but it still works....
