    An absolute stunner, bird and image. Sharp with great detail and a background to die for. Perfect head angle. Love the reddish feathers with the grey fringes.

    Sanjeev, nice to see you here.

    Just about perfect. Stunning color palette, detail to spare and a wonderfully cropped portrait composition.

    Only thing I can [hesitantly] recommend is spot healing that little white spec in the right portion of the eye. Such a powerful look into the birds soul there, it caught my eye as a minor distraction.

    Well done, thank you!
