Hello Jorge,

It is not every day to see such a fine photo! You have used DOF in a very special way. The bird was cutt of the environment and shown in all its splendor. Very well chosen light bring its contribution to the value of the photo. Execlent sharpness of the image has to be mentioned too.

A very happy birthday to you.
Superb capture here with such a good composition.
I love the colour and detail and how you have desaturated the BG.
Have a good weekend, Joni
