* From the Critique Club *

What most hurts this shot is the fact that it is out of focus, and it doesn't look like you did that on purpose. I assume it's movement blur resulting from a slow shutter speed in a low-light situation, but I can't really tell because you didn't include the technical details. Composition could be improved, the dark area in the top right corner is too empty, and the leaf obscures the bird without really adding interest. If you had aimed the camera lower, you would have gotten rid of part of the empty area, and you would have had more of the bananas.

Despite all this, the colors are great, especially the colormatch between the bird and the bananas. Keep up the good work!

Too blurred, too washed out. Awkward composition.

Very pretty picture, the colors are lovely. To me, it would have looked better if the bananas hadn't been cropped off on the bottom. Also, it is not is focus.

Soft focus or just movement in the photo? Bad quality so you want get high score from me.

Bananas out of focus, and over exposed. The bird too is a tad out of focus.

Yes, pretty colors, just not much focus. I'm not sure what happened....maybe some post process problem? Like your idea.

Nice colors, but I would have liked to have seen the bird a bit sharper
