Greetings fromt the Critique Club
Nice to meet ya, Jubei.

I love the crop on this - I love the crop because it takes up the full side of the frame. That's a great choice. I wouldn't have even minded a bit more off the right to complete the design.

Your DoF is super! I noticed you eliminated the fence, and at the same time blurred a perfect green and brown background. Unfortunately you blurred some of the crown and feathers on the back of her neck, but again, not sure it's controllable.

What time of day was this shot? I would have liked it just a little less harsh in the lighting, but this is critique for the sake of critique. I love the shot too much to know what I DON'T like!

I hope you're extremely pleased with your 7! :) I've never had a shot so high or so perfect. You should be happy with this - and keep shooting!

I can't believe no one could tell that the shadows are actually an out of focus fence between you and the subject! Or maybe, I'm just really wrong, that's what it looks like to me. Nice shot otherwise though.

Well Jubei, i feel you deserve a ribbon more than that other shot (although i gave 10s to both) as technically this is far by the more demanding of the two shots and imho the more sophisticated.. I read some comments here about the shadows; didn't bother me at all, just loved the detail on the beak. Anyway, still a good score and a great picture (which is the most important).

Wow, very sharp! The feathers on the bird's head along with their shadows really make this image pop! Great shot.

Nice. A nit pick: the shadow of the crest spoils the detail on the bird's face. But still a nice shot.

love this one too

Good choice for cropping -- most would keep the entire crown in, but this way works better.

This is just beautiful. The definition is outstanding. I really love the reflections of his feathers on his face, particularly through his eye! Great definition on his beak. It makes this image so alive.Love the blurred background and its color. Good photographic eye and a good camera! Gosh, what a handsome guy. You know, i still have over 300 pics to vote on but i lingered a long time looking at this image. 10 Journey. May i pat him?
