    Hi Geoffrey, quite a view straight on of this character. Lots of detail and beautiful with more blue than I've seen here.

    The perch is unique and I love a bit of foliage included. The oof vertical part of the branch is slightly less desirable for me but it's very interesting how it kind of frames things.

    I'm a fan of denoise on the bkg. Perhaps you are not but I think it could really help this one.

    TFS!

    Lots of personality with these guys, and it shows here! I love the foliage. You could opt to fill in the lower right corner with more green if you are not against that. A pleasant image.

    Thanks Brian and Daniel. Brian i agree it needs a bit more noise reduction, and Daniel I did think about that.

    The techs are already covered. But the pose is very neat. Like the setting as well.
