Took this picture in Cedar Key, FLorida this weekend. I love the way the textures on the feathers, eyes, and beak are expressed in this picture. Basic photo editing for exposure levels.

the way you've composed the shot makes him look like he is being squeezed into the frame.

Great closeup of the birds head. Incredible details. Love the different textures that you were able to capture. The eye placement helps to make the composition interesting. "10"

Well it certainly has a dynamic composition. Softfocus at the bottom but still one of the better shots.

well composed and very natural colours. Well done for resisting the temptation of over saturation ;)

very nice colors and focus, but the crop seems a bit tight for the feathers to balance bill, and the right angles in the backround clash with the curves of the subject. However it is a very nice shot.

Interesting shot, nice texture contrasts within the subject. The cropping is a little too radical, I'd have liked seeing more of the head feathers.

Very nice.

Great composition, focus & colours. Interesting shot.

Thaty background really is a shame - pulls the eye very hard. I'm just aware of those shapes all the time I try to look at the capture of teh bird. Good work on the exposure, and it's a very accurate rendition, good sense of the construction of its beak, and the differing textures there. But that thing in the back is murdering what might have been a top image. A shame, too.

Nice shot with good texture, but it doesn't really have a "wow" factor.

Terrific rendition of the feather texture. And he stood still long enough for you to gete the shot. If you only could have gotten a catchlight this would be perfect. Nevertheless, it's still a great 7.
