    Hey Joe, this is super cool, the contrast of colour, HA and detail really work oh so well!

    Just a thought, but adding a Curves Midtone so you are utilising quarter, mid and three quarter tones to get some tonal range in the subject, but then punch up the BKG. The overall colour really pops.

    Nice work.

    Color, detail, and feathers work beautifully, but I'm really, really missing the tail. This frame feels caught between a headshot and a body shot.

    Love the color here that blue is great. The pattern in the feathers is very nice. I like the preening pose.

    Joe, never seen one in person but this one is very pretty on screen. Really nice preening pose, sharp and nice balance with the multi-color bkg.
