    Good job on the high contrast, blacks look good, the bill looks good but I am sure you could get a little more detail there.

    Really like the pose on this one. Nice framing. The red eye is nice.

    Very well done. Those beaks are difficult on this subject, but I think you handled it nicely.

    Hi Joseph ,
    looks good to me overall. Nice head turn and the overall tonal range is nice . Truck loads of detail .
    Nicely done
