    Gorgeous shot! The colors are exquisite, the details are great and I like your composition. I'm also a fan of the background vegetation on the RHS - it adds a lot of depth to the image. There's a green cast to the image - always an issue in forests where light's reflected off the leaves. Should be an easy fix in PP, though. Amazing work!

    This is fantastic! What a great bird with fabulous details.
    Love the BG and the foliage on the RHS.
    I do not see a green cast but I have never seen this bird in real life.
    No nits from me!

    Whoa. What a unique looking bird. That blue around the eye is great. Background looks right on as well.

    Great bird. Wonderful detail, colors, comp. That's quite a bill; looks like you could use it as a can-opener for a 55 gallon barrel.

    sweet shot, warming the image and sharpening another round will pay dividends here

    Colors are really nice. I agree Image can be warmed a touch.
