My personal preference would have been to see this photo cropped down so that your subject took up the majority of the space. For me, the background almost overwhelms the wonderful textures of the feathers, and the composition feels a little unbalanced. Your lighting is excellent, really bringing out the details in the bird.

Nice bird but it seems way over sharpened. You also may need to use more of tha allotted file size.

Loved the colors. Loved the position. Shy indeed.

Cute guy and he's in a great pose. Composition is good too. Colors are good with a splash of color in the otherwise muted tones. Only nitpick is that it looks a little oversharpened as the white halo around the head really stands out against the blue of the water.

I love the composition of this shot and the colors and clarity are excellent. Another interesting thing about this photo is the mixture of textures. I like the smoothness of the water in contrast to all the textures of the bird. Very Nice job!

Great capture of pose and very nice composition. Two constructive criticisms: oversharpened and dull ground taking up too much of pic.

This is one of my favorite shots of this challenge. It's a beautiful subject and you did a nice job of composition and capturing such outstanding detail. Great job.

Too much sharpening around the black part of the head. Good crop, colour and light. 8 - floyd

A very good photograph. Great color and composition. Good dof. I hestitate to say too over sharpened, as I have taken a lot of bird photos, and some just look like this if any post processing used. Well done!

Very nice shot and focus. I just would have liked to have seen the bird centered better. Still, nice shot.

Easy on the sharpener! But I like the composition

Excellent! Composition works well, I would have bumped the contrast a tad, but nontheless, I'm handing over a 8

I like the composition and colours. The bird is a bit over sharpened.
