Welcome to the club. For your first digital image you did a great job. I like the close up and the composition of the picture. Placing the parrot over on the right side instead of the middle works very well. The cage on the left of the picture creates a nice pattern, I wouldn't change that at all. Two things could be changed that would help. If you toned down the light a little you would not have the glare on the beak. The other would be to use more than one light. The shaddow on the back wall is distracting. You could have used a back light to wipe that out or move the cage so the shaddow has nothing to rest on. Keep up the good work, I'll keep an eye out for future work. JG

I like the color contrasts in this photo. I lie how the lines of the birdcage leads your eys through the photo.

Pretty bird, pretty bird. I like how Bobo is leaning towards us!! I think the lighting is a bit harsh - see the shadows behind Bobo? A slightly different angle and you could have cropped out the piece of vertical lumber on the right side.

Nice colors. A tighter crop when have made "Bobo" stand out more.

He's beautiful, as usual. But you usually don't have a shadow with him. What happened. Such a beautiful bird. The photo is A-1 except for the shadow and it doesn't hurt that much.

Nice bird with beautiful colors. I just wish you could've used a better setting to shoot it. Good luck!

Nice. Just a little overexposed on the beak... But nothing a little spot editing can't fix.:)Probably took you forever to get him to look at you huh? If he's anything like my dog, he hates the flash....
