Beautiful. Great job making the bird stand out on top of a colorful background. Congrats!

Super clarity and brilliant colours...well done on a top 10 finish

They're certainly a popular bird for photographers. It's such a joy (when living in Australia) to have the wild ones come into your garden.
Well done on your new personal best.

Beautiful! Two things though. One, I would've cropped this a little tighter, as I think there's too much open space at the top of the image. Two, the blurry object in the lower left corner is a little distracting, although that may have been unavoidable. Good job.

very nice processing except for the halo on the right border of the bird's body

Burst of colors. The background is also colorful and goes very well with the bird's colors. Excellent sharpness and unbelievable details.

The thing at the left bottom corner could have been avoided, I think. The saturation is a little too much for my tastes.

wow, such stunning colors. The only thing keeping it from a 10 is the halo around the parrot. (gave it a 9, back for commenting)

Beautiful colours and nice processing.

I'm not a bird person but the focus is spot on. I love that the background has a rainbow effect as well. My only complaint is the blur of the front bokeh - probably part of the tree upon which he is resting. 7
