Welcome to TN, Hanza. What a lovely bird. The photo is a bit out of focus. With the face a tad over-exposed. Still a nice photo though. I did a WS to try and show you what I mean. Please tell me what you think. Thanx for sharing.

Bienvenida Hanza... me alegra hayas recibido mi invitacion en TE.
Deberias retirar esta misma foto de alli.
Excelente captura... muy interesante especimen.
Coincido con Gerhardt sobre el foco, pero los colores son bonitos y tiene un adecuado DOF.
Bien hecho!

Welcome Hanza... I cheers to me you have received my invitation in TE.
You would have to retire this same photo of there.
Excellent capture... very interesting specimen.
I agree with Gerhardt on the focus, but the colors are pretty and a suitable DOF.
Well done!

Welcome to TN Hanza.
I'm agree with Ricardo about the focus.
But it is a nice picture with nice color.
Well done

Hi Hanza, and well met again here on TN. The Hornbill has a great bill and lovely eyes, you should focus on the eye and use a tripod if you can. This should render the eye in focus. Focus is a bit soft. A little bit more space above & behind the head will improve your composition too. Also, if you could get some more detailed info on the birds, it helps us all to learn.

I tried photographing a hornbill in the Paris Zoo a month ago, but it decided to stay hidden in high grass for two whole hours. Great job you did with this nice close-up!

Beautyfull photo:-))

Here is your points.
