Hello Heinz!
Very nice capture.Clear eyes and details,vivid colors,POV and composition are excellent.

Hi Heinz,
This is beautiful shot, very nice colour, excellent composition, nice catchlight in eye.

Hello Heinz

What bright orange plumage. This would have been a challenge to photograph. You have done well. Good clear detail with a nice catchlight in the eye. Well done. Thanks.

Nice shot Heinz, This has good details and DOF, Better control of the exposure and saturation would improve the image. Good work!

Hello Heinz!
Wonderful shot.Colors,eyecontact,POV,sharpness and composition are perfect.Thanks for posting.

Hallo Heinz,
das ist ein wundervoller Vogel, welch' intensives orange, da wo er beheimatet ist kann er nicht so viele Feinde haben, sonst ging's ihm schlecht mit diesem Federkleid.
Auf alle Fälle sind Ihre Photos immer was ganz besonderes und sehr aussagekräftig.
Ich hätte so gerne mehr Zeit um auch mal in einen Tierpark zu fahren und mich auszutoben.
Wird schon noch - viele liebe Grüße

Hey Heinz,

WOW thats a lot of color. Very nice shot. A tad bit soft, but you've captured the look in his eye very well. Well done

Nice shot Heinz,
Good detail and good POV. The exposure is difficult to get right on this bird, also the colours appear a bit saturated on my monitor.. Nicely composed.
Well captured, thanks for posting.

Beautiful colors on a well captured bird! :-) The eye is very clear and positioned well in the photo. Well done!

Beau spécimen, les couleurs de l'oiseau sont magnifiques et offre de jolie contraste.

Juste un peut trop de saturation.

Merci pour l'envoie.
