    Stunning pose, detail, HA and sharpness. That drip sure makes it special!

    This is very pretty.
    Love the subtle tones and your crop.
    Water drop is, of course, an added bonus!

    Nice colour palette Will, but for me being so close you needed more DoF.

    Yea, the drop does it! The feather detail is super. I might give him a bit more room above, if you have it. A bit more DOF woulda been nice, but nothing you can do about that now!

    Really like this one Will. Detail is sharp and comp sucks me in to the eye. As mentioned, the water dripping off of the wet beak is super.

    Only suggestion might be to add a touch of warmth and see if you like it any better.

    Nicely done sir! FWIW, dof issues never crossed my mind - had to look really closely a couple times to find fault.

    Hi Brian, I can only base my thoughts on additional DoF from my own experiences and this recent posting, never trying to find fault, just trying, as always to be constructive.

    Oh no, it didn't feel crazy to me Steve personally that you commented about it. That's what the forum is for. Just thought I'd mention i didn't notice prior :-)
