Well done Annick,
Well composed portrait, and I think this vertical frame really suits the "exotic" looking subject here..
Technically sound with very good color, exposure, POV, DOF, and sharp details. On a scale of 1-10, I give it an 8.75 ;)

Where did he come from?? I've NEVER seen such a beauty before Annick! And it's a pigeon, what a beautiful head of 'hair' he has. And the red eyes to go with the blue/grey - wonderful colours too. Well seen and captured, thank you

Wonderful capture of this lady, Annick.
A magnificent specimen of this crowned pigeon.
Such sharp details, and the light on it is great.
Love that red eye... and the panache on the head.
TFS this exotic bird. : )

Wooow - amazing close-up, Annick.
Very interesting bird, but primarily perfect POV and sharpening.Colours is beautiful and look at eye is very suggestive.Good work!
Thak you very much for sharing.
Fine close-up of this bird.
This is in fact a pigeon: the Crowned Pigeon, from New Caledonia. So it is not a Galliform.
TFs, regards, Ivan

A difficult image to capture for the beautiful plumage of the head of the bird my friend, but you have achieved it with good results.
I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, sharpness, focus, color, framing, lighting, , .
I like it: background (I believe that it was impossible another alternative), notes.
I don't like it: nothing.
Beautiful bird... very good portrait.

Again, I'm astonished about those so strange birds you present to us :) Wow! It doesn't look like the pigeons we have here, not at all :) This is a wonderful portrait of this bird with excellent details and POV. What a strange animal... Thanks,
