Feedback, per your request in the forums:

I think the biggest issue with this is the extreme crop. It's a good shot of the bird, but I think enlarging this small section of the image resulted in a loss lack of detail at this size. It seems a little soft, and sharpening on the computer probably would not give it what it needs. I do like the colors. A little more than this may have been too much, however. How are you doing your adjustments? Are you using curves, or just brightness/contrast/saturation? Try curves if you have not used it before. (Not available in Photoshop elements, but you can obtain a free plug in that will add the ability.)

As far as the challenge goes, I think it may have been DNMC for the DNMC challenge. (I know that sounds odd) I think the ones that did better for this April fool's challenge were the ones that were a little more bizarre or humorous in nature. Some people took it as a freestudy, but I think it was actually the chance to to those weird images that don't normally fit anywhere else.

The colours seem saturated a little too much to me. Lovely image.
