I took this at the Cheyenne mountain zoo just today, I had a great time exploring the whole zoo over the course of 5 hours, and i took over 800 pictures. This is my favorite of the bunch, and it certainly matches the cool colors theme...

i like this shot and its colors a lot, but the background is too distracting

I feel you could have cropped off the background on the right as it's a bit distracting. Good otherwise

I think a portrait crop would have worked better than the landscape crop.

Great bright colours on show here. Some noise obvious in the background is a slight distraction for this composition and the shadow lessens the impact.

Nice cool colors and good focus. The light didn't cooperate with you though -- the eye and face are in shadow and the highlights on the beak are blown. I like the DOF with the cool colored bokeh in the background.

Very BLUE, but lacks finesse of comp, saturation.

Nice detail of the face and good unique and vibrant colors.

The background's a little distracting unfortunately.
