Thanks for showing us Alan,
What an ugly beauty, very good composing shot, the details are very good. I would say it is a little out of pof and that a shame however I like the good job here, gr. Jaap

Great note and very colorful picture. I think the focus is a bit soft but the picture is very nice nevertheless. The composition is great and so is POV.
Excelent capture and well done on this portrait. Excelent details.
Just ever so slightly soft on the focus.
I did a workshop to help out a little.

Nice profile shot Alan. I like the soft natural looking colors. Good detail. Well done!
A great portrait of a most impressive specimen,Alan.
Although the photo is fine as it is,I've done a workshop to show how a little post processing can bring out even more detail and colour.Often these are 'bleached' out a little by glare from uv rays.
I use a little program called Irfanview which I downloaded for free.It is a very quick way to enhance photos and very easy to use.I hope you like the result.

Not the most beautiful bird in the world Alan, but you have captured him well, it does look a little soft but the composition is good.

Great capture though the focus looks a touch soft around the eye. Interesting note.

You HAVE been busy, I see, and a lot of nice pics too! I have a soft point for these guys with the big casques, and this is an exceptionally nice one. Good to see another bird with blue eyes. Lovely overal image. Small nit is eyes are not 100% spot on in focus on my screen. Watch where your camera "settles" and always focus on the eyes.
