This was one of 3 images to which I gave a 9. Lovely light, lovely sharp detail, nice focal point in that lovely eye.

no, sorry, there's no color banding, just didn't notice that I had color settings on 16-bit. but still gave you 9, since I suspected the problem might be be on my side :) this one I really liked

Nice shot. Just the little bit of open beak adds a lot.

Sharp and neat. If you wave a dodge around the dark upper half of the eye it will brighten it a lot.

Great shot, lots of detail. Kinda harsh lighting but still looks great.

Great Detail... and I love the black and white background, it really makes the subtle colors of the feather pop out.

Overprocessed, or over cropped, but still a 6.
