Hi Jan, great shot. The lighting is superb and the focus is spot on. The composition is very good and the little glint in the eye is lovely. I forgot to mention the gorgeous colours. Well done.

Great image Jan Hendrik, mooi so. Beaut colours and razor sharp showing the face feathers so well. Background taken out of play imcreases impact, especially the on the beak. Well done, Rob

I like the expression on the macaws face. I might try cropping it in from the left though, the background is a bit distracting. I also wanted to let you know that this is actually a Blue & Gold macaw. The Blue-Throated macaws are actually more of a turquoise blue on the back as well as where the black is in this picture coming down from the throat (it extends farther down). The other change is that the black markings on the face are actually turquoise as well on the Blue-Throated. Nice capture though!
