very nice work, excellent bokeh. all i can think is that if your subject could have given you a more pleasing horizontal composition, you might could have finished higher.

Great Shot and a rockin' finish! Congrats on your top 20!

That's sweet! I wanted to shoot a peacock for this challenge but never did get around to reshooting.

Great bokeh. I hope this bird didn't jab you with that sharp beak!

Peacocks are hard to pull off well, very good.

I really like the vibrant colors here, and I think the details of his head couldn't be better. Nice work!

Suits the challenge, re the "Bokeh" behind the peacock...
06/21/2006 07:01:57 PM
wow, very pretty, wish the background were greener to match the intensity of the blue bird, but still a 9 in my book

Beautiful. I like the colors a lot.
Perhaps dodge the left side of his face a little, though? Just to brighten it up. It's a bit dark.
