I have a collection of feathers - some from my niece's parrots. They are colorfull and light. This was a learning experience in lighting and still not just what I wanted.
I may try this again but differently. My setup lacks consistency.

Large images to show the detail of the feathers would have been better

This is one of the few thick, "fancy" frames that I really, really think adds to the whole composition. It doesn't hurt that your subjects are beautiful, though. The feather to the right is definitely the strongest, in my opinion. I was about to suggest that it might be nice with the center feather more centered. But on closer look, I see that its shadow contributes nicely.

3 very well executed shots...I would however like to see more equal tones in the background of the 2 color shots...the one on the left has a much deeper tone to it... but nice work.

Really nice set-up of shapes and colors, shadows and gradients! Nice photoshop work with the subtle frames :) Bump UP

Wow - beautiful detail and sense of lightness. Even your shadows in the borders supports the feel.

Now this is good. Creative, thematic, and interesting. Keep it up.

6 - Nice. Good title. Criticism; not sure on the outer 'padding', does give a 3d type of effect but not sure it complements the 'light and delicate' nature of the 'set'. Middle shot not sure on, especially cropping, size and loss of color and detail - again though, likely looks quite different 'wall size'. Colors overall are nice, but would like to see all a little 'richer'. Similar detail in #3 as in #1 would also make this a better triptych in my opinion.

very nice shots of the feathers, and colorful, but the framing is a little too gimmicky, it takes attention away from the images

Great colors...I also like the white to grey faded background.

I'd really have appreciated to have the central pictures more important..but I like the idea and the overall realisation

I like the background "reverse gradients", and am interested in the optical illusion this creates, where the vertical spaces between the frames appear not be parallel, when they obviously are. I like the compilation very much, and the title!

Great title!!! I like the gradation of the canvas tones.
