La photo est belle et de bonne qualité. L'oiseau est étonnant mais c'est pas un playboy ;-) La note est, comme toujours, instructive.
Well done !

He looks like a seventies pimp, with his fur jacket. These are for sure your signature shots Callie. Lovely detail and colours. Today is one of those days when the posts are so good I feel like it's my 1st post here on TN. Brilliant, Masterpiece.

Ugly, for sure, but I love the eye make-up. How's his wife? This is a real change, Callie. I'm not jealous of this one, but of the beautiful wildlife you can see in S.A. and the way you share this with us. Thanks
Yep, this one is ugly to be sure Callie. Very good as usual, although I wonder if it might be just a little overexposed, or at least wouldn't be hurt with a little lower exposure. Good shot.
Did you get a new lens?

Yeah, he's ugly...but he's an honest bird...the others hide their ugliness with feathers :-). Good shot Callie, I really like Gerhard's take on it. As for the exposure, I agree with Darren, but it's still very good.

May be ugly in the ground, but in the air it must be magnificent. Very beautiful photo, you can really feel this bird through this shot.
My magtig, callie, hoekom laat jy die voel so skrik!!!!? Very nice Callie. I like the dour look on his face - ook met niks tevrede nie.

Very ugly and ... beautiful.
Composition and sharpness are spot on.
I would have increase saturation colours, but it's still really nice.

You sure know how to pick-em' Callie! Sometimes I wonder about your facination with the "Uglies"!! It's a good head-shot..and I like head-shots! A bit over as stated. Your bright background carried-over a tad into your subject..Probabably because your shooting such a "bone-head"!! ;-))

Creo que debe ser el ave mas fea de las publicadas hasta ahora Callie.
Pero la calidad de la imagen es fantastica... al igual que el workshop.
Gran agudeza con un colorido totalmente natural y perfecto DOF.
Un feo lleno de belleza.
I believe that it must now be the ugly bird but of the published ones until Callie.
But the quality of the image is fantastic... like workshop.
Great sharpness with colorful totally natural and perfect DOF.
An ugly plenty of beauty.
