Hi Joe. Looks like you had a good time. A nice dedication to Karan. This is such a colourful bird. You got very close giving you fine detail and colours. A very well focused clear eye. I see this was taken with the !00 -400 lens its still working then.
Well done TFS.

Hello Joe !
Wow, what a wonderful portrait ! I like everything here - sharpness, details, colors, composition, POV... And the feathers on the Pheasant's breast are splendid, they look a bit like reptile scales, strange but beautiful. I see you managed to use your Chrismas present with great skill, as the picture is wonderful - really a nice dedication to your friend. Very well done !

Superb sharpness, colours and details here Joe!
Even though you had the benefit of the BWC to get close you made a good job of portraying this cock pheasant to show the head and neck in all its glory.

I don't know what you could have done better. The sharpness and details, the patterns in the feathers, they are marvelous. Splendid colours. A perfect composition and pose.

I am honoured to have such a splendid photo dedicated to me. It sounds like you had a lovely day. I almost went to the BWC on Saturday but in the end the fine and frosty morning tempted me out for an early walk in Arundel. The photo is quite apt as I have pheasants all around me on the walk. I do think the are beautiful birds.
You have caught the lovely shapes and colours of the feathers. Great POV and pin sharp.
I was given a voucher for a photo day at the BWC - so later in the year I will be going in with the foxes, otters etc
Thank you :)
