Great closeup - you can really see some of the focus and intensity in the eyes.

The boarder is a bit excessive but I like the crop

This is my favorite photo of the challenge so far, I love the details in his/her face, very intense. I would have cloned out the two spots on his back, but that is minor, and I am still adding this to faves and giving a 10. Good job.

Nice bird shot, the top of the beak is a bit hot, but nice focus

Crisp and clear which is good, but the frame is too large and makes the bird look 'caged in'.

Gorgeous bird.

It could perhaps have taken a little more saturation as these normally have very rich colours up close, but it's a crisp clear shot, and nicely composed.

While you're waiting for the challenge to finish you can look up the website of the Zoo or Hawk centre and find out exactly what particular Bird of Prey it is :- )

Awesome in-your-face shot! Good bokeh, and love the vivid colors.

The border is overbearing, but a good capture of detail in the subject.

Nice sharp image. The border is just so wrong for this shot.

Very nice closeup with great bokeh and catchlight that looks real.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

imo the border is really distracting. the photo itself is awesome. great detail and expression. he really looks like he is getting ready to swoop and catch dinner

Only one score I can possibley give this, 10!

Great closeup! The border is a bit too heavy for my personal taste, but thats just me. I like the lighting and colors. Good luck!

Interesting cropping of the Harris' Hawk. Kind of looks like it is ready to pounce.

wish there was slightly more room for him in the frame ... nice tones and sharpness ...
