    A beautiful portrait with nice head turn, topped off by that partly cloudy BG. Well done.

    This is a great subject in great light, but I think this needs to be a an 8x10 portrait crop instead. There is too much space around the bird as is, and his is looking into the short side of the frame as is (though only barely). If you're gonna go headshot, the detail really needs to smack the viewer in the face. He's a bit small for that to happen here.

    Nice portrait here. This would have made a nice vertical. The light and sharpness are great.
