At the local Saturday morning Farmer's Market these two entertained me with their antics. One was very protective of the other.
My program that shows me the exif info isn't working quite right tonight. I'll try to gather my info later.

CC Hello Gracious

Fits The Challenge-Yes.
Composition-Good, great timing, good capture.
Background-Weakest part of the shot.
My Opinion-I understand about the tent. Hard shot to get but you did well. The colors are fantastic....reminds me of a Kodak commercial. Vivid and intense. The booger at the top on the tent is a distraction but again with manipulation that can be removed....the whole background could be changed!! <lol> It was a good find and a pleasing shot.

This was taken under a very bright, white tent. The unidentified object in the upper right is some metal hardware that helped keep the tent up. I couldn't avoid it.
The demonstrative bird has a white face, thus it blended, or rather disappeared into the white bg. If I had waited for the bird to move his face I wouldn't have gotten this shot of his wings extended. I grabbed it!!!

Wonderful colours on this bird. The mssing beak looks odd to me though. At first I thought there were two birds but now I'm not so sure if there's just one bird looking into a mirror.

Great subject for this challenge. Unfortunately, the white of the bird's face is burned out and the other bird a little distracting the way it is. However, a good job.

The only bad thing about this photo is in the top of the photo I can't tell what is supposed to be there. It just seems like bright whiteness, too bright. Otherwise a very nice photo.

What the heck is in the white area?! A C K! Spectacular colors - wish I would either see the other guy or NOT see the other guy. Very bright picture.

My personal fave for this challenge. Reminds me of the images you see on promotional posters for camera film. I would have given it a 10 if only the slight distractions in the background were not present. Would have also have been nice to maybe have a slight glimpse of the main subjects face. Apart from that...a wonderful wonderful image. Good luck!

Great colour and detail on the feathers, and an amazing pose from your model, but the top is far overexposed, and it destroys the details of the bird's head and the background. I see there is a figure way in the background too.. i don't know what it is, but if it is more than just a dirt spot or mistake, perhaps it could have been closer to be a part of the picture's story rather than an outlyer.

The bird part is great. The background looks like something went wrong with a telepod experiment or something. Too bright IMO and difficult to determine what's really going on there.

Excellent colors. the blown out sky with (a bird) is distracting, and it took off the left side of the parrots face. Little faster shutter speed may have done it, since it looks like the feathers a are somewhat blurred from movement.

Beautiful bird.... I would have gotten a close-up of his feathers... they're beautiful!

Are they fighting? And what is that black thing above the right wing? Still, great colors. 7.

Beautiful display of color. You did well but a front view with the face exposed would have also been good, maybe even a little better, but very nice.

Wow that is colorful, excellent capture there. It seems a little blown out at the top though, the birds face kinds of disappears into whiteness and there is something I can't really make out what it is at the top right - 8.

Very nice work and original!
The contrast is a bit to high though in my opinion and the white is to bright as a result of this. Perhaps this could have been avoided with another backdrop color.
