    Impressive capture! Head-on is about as hard as it gets! Open beak is great, and the light eyes really crack against the body. Background is what it is; frame lacks punch with color. I might also rethink the crop as there's a ton of empty space as is. This is a tough pose to compose!

    Hi Colin ... a difficult image to make really great looking !!!
    Stunning head on shot with the open beak and those eyes ..... gorgeous .
    Tones loooking very good and well controlled ... might add a bit more USM to the subject .

    Why did you use NR ? No need at these ISO values .... unless you had to lift the exposure in post .

    Cool shot and TFS Andreas

    Is this a photo or a cartoon? Actually, I love it, especially the eyes. And the open bill.
