Hi Peter,
Loverly shot. Very colorful background and good exposure. It's usually hard to get a good exposure of dark objects. Details are good too.


Hi Peter,
A special image. First of all through the subject; you don't see them often here in Treknature. Also through the coloured BG.
Well done

Hi Peter
great sharpness and lovely BG. I would have crooped a bit the upper part which is a bit empty

Color tones, exposure handling, focus and sharpness is very good. I liked the pose you caught. The details of the black plumage is excellent. Well done and TFS
