The bluish grass just doesn't look right to me. I'm guessing that the colour settings were adjusted to bring out the blue in the peacock, but I think there's too much of a blue cast on the entire image, rendering the grass an unrealistic colour.

Really nice. It's almost on the border of being too processed, but I like it.

It's a bit too blueish. Needs the natural red dot on the feather to discord the texture.

The colors of the peacock feathers gets lost in the green, busy background. Or maybe the lack of focus is why it doesn't stand out.

would be grand if there was more contrast between the grass and the peacock feathers.

Cool tones of blue and green in this photo, an excellent capture. I wanted to do this with a peacock but it didn't open up so I left frustrated after half an hour of waiting. You got lucky!

Gorgeous! Did you do something with the color here, like adjust the hue or oversaturate? I can't really tell, it just looks a little off .

The peacok seems to blend in with the background.. and the image seems to have a blueish tint, nice though.

strange coloring - looks faked

Seems like there's a colour cast on this - the grass looks rather blue.

To me, it looks like the blue channel might have been increased a bit much, the grass looks very bright. Other than that, this is well done - 7 - Mav

Nice...I like the crop. It makes the fan seem larger. Great colour, perfect exposure. Good luck.

I guy from India told me that they have a word for the color (the breast) of a peacock. Its not blue. Actually, it looks alot like cobolt, but not exactly. Anyway, i just thought i'd let you know. The shot needs better focus. Also the grass needs to be green and looks unatural. I like the cropping.

I like the picture but the color is unworldly.

The picture is too blue.

This could have been shaper with more satuation but I'm envious of the capture.Good job.

It looks like the colors were adjusted a little too much in favor of the blue, to the point where it distorts the color of the grass. Nice pic though!

The bird is awesome. However, probably because of color adjustment, the grass is looking very strange.
