Great shot! Did you crop?

7 - Good and unusual. Criticism; 'if only' the top of the head/crown/feathers were not cut/cropped, make this much better in my opinion, even with the wings (even though seemingly fully spread) cut. 640 and just more context (if you had it, obviously) also would have given this extra. Good colors and background. Up to 7 from 6, mainly for 'unique factor'.

that bird looks like it has a strong personality

That is one ugly bird! Nice colors in the beak though - 7

wouldn't wanna pick a fight with this bird. i wouldn't have cropped it's head so tightly, would've been nice to see his mohawk!

Great use of shallow depth of field.

Would have preferred mor body or wings. Perhaps portrait instead of landscape? Still very nice.

Great clarity on the head. It kind of feels as though something is missing for balance without more of the wings.

oh that is sooooo funny... I have no idea what kind of bird this is... but it is a hoot!
01/27/2006 06:26:32 PM
Very nice
01/26/2006 06:15:27 PM
cropped too tightly at the top
01/26/2006 12:58:37 AM
Would have been better if you had included more of the bird's body.

Gandalf lives!
01/25/2006 09:15:42 PM
well done.
01/25/2006 06:35:22 PM
Good, but would have liked to see just a little more of the wings, with reguards to the title. He wouldn't win a beauty competition....

Very nice picture. I would have liked to see more of the bird, but still very very nice.

Cute photo; excellent caption! Cropping a little too tight for my tastes, but it works!
01/25/2006 02:33:52 PM
Nice shot. Wish the feathers at the top of the head hadn't been chopped off though. Nice DOF. Thanks for sharing.
01/25/2006 02:28:13 PM
very nice
01/25/2006 01:17:24 PM

01/25/2006 06:57:14 AM
