Wonderfull shot. Sharpness and colours are great!.
Hi Loot, well done, now I see some stripes you did something with a workshop.. I still think its not far these beautifull creatures are there, suburb If you wake up and this is flying around, the colours are a special present. Thanks for sharing. Good for my preparation. Greetings Reina
What an incredible shot and incredible bird.
Every time that I see something like this, I wonder Who created a creature that beautiful, and all other beautiful creatures that we have the pleasure to photograph.
Great POV and colors.

Wow, Loot, did you spray paint that bird? LOL!! Fabulous POV, lovely portrait but it appears a tiny bit oversharpened.

Amazing colors on this bird, Loot.
The color scheme is so outrageous, only nature can pull it off. : )
I agree with Alli that the image looks a bit oversharpened.
A fantastic portrait nevertheless. TFS. : )

The colours and detail are really stunning in this picture and the OOF BG colours works really well with the colours of the bird.
I'm much more a landscape person (as you know) but this one really caught my eye. It has a very strong composition.

Oei, is eintlik al wat ek vir 'n geruime tyd kon uitkry nadat ek na die outjie gekyk het. Eersteklas beteken net dit wat die sę, eerste in die spesifieke klas, maar hier sou ek reken beteken dit rerig eerste, tweede en derde in die klas. Hierdie puik voęl met sy goue nek vere, rooi oog kraaltjies, groen oog vere, diep-blou kop vere en daardie pragtige groot swart oog is ietsie absoluut besonders.
Ek hou van die kristal agtige kwaliteit wat jy in die vere vasgevang het. Die kleure is iets besonders en so ook die skerp fokus.

This Turaco gave you such a good pose for this photo. You made the colour come "alive" in this photo. Have a great day.

What a delightful and colourful image. I think all the details are just stunning and so clearly visible. This is indeed a WOW photo. A gorgeous bird which you presented in a very special portrait. The more I look at it, the more glamourous it becomes. Fantastic portrayal with excellent detail and great colours. Excellent framing and superb focus. I would love to photograph one of these in real. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Loot, I have just seen your site for the first time. I like the effect created here, the immense details around the eye is particularly amazing. The DOF makes this colourful bird really stand out well. Very fine work. TFS. Murray.

Superb piece of work, Loot.
Hope, someday, am able to produce even half as good.
