Hello Thijs,
Wonderful capture.I liked vivid colors,dark BG,contrast between bird and BG,details and catchlight in eyes a lot.I think framing is a little tight and would be better if all tail were shown.Nevertheless lovely work!

Hello Thijs,
What an amazing coloured bird is that? I think it has all colours of the universe on it. Like a rainbow. You are very successful to capture this beauty. Very well chosen POV and DOF. Main objects was very well seperated from dark BG. Lovely job!

Hoi Thijs,
Wat een kleurvolle vogel, mooi scherp en door de donkere achtergrond komen de kleuren ten volle tot zijn recht.
Jammer dat de staart er niet helemaal opstaat en aan de voorkant meer ruimte.
Bedankt en groetjes,

Bonsoir Thijs,
Good picture and pretty colours, good shot..!
Best regards,

Vivid sharp colors with the perfect composition. I agree with Dew 37 in that the framing is a little tight

A colorful bird very well captured, the colors and the details are very good. The catch light adds value. The only nit is the tail is cut, was it intentional?

Hi Thijs,
Net als de vorige foto komt ook deze papagaai heel mooi uit tegen de donkere achtergrond.
Prachtige kleuren en scherpte.

Another success for your personal portfolio.

Hello Thijs!
Your pic seems to be a promo of a new model of Printer!
Have almost all colors of the rainbow.
Perfect POV, flash, and color saturation.

What beautiful colors on this rosella, Thijs.
Quite intricate patterns on those feathers!
The focus seems a tad soft to me??
But a great POV.
TFS. : )

Hi Thijs

Lovely colours, well composed with excellent BG. Wonderful camera work. TFS.

Hello Thijs.
Very vivid colors that jump out at you..especially with this dark BG. Well exposed with good detail and DOF. The tight compostion is a matter of taste..but it works too :)
Have a good day!

Hello Thijs,
It is a color explosion! I like those details, exposure and nice dark BG. I would probably have cropped it a little less tight as there is a bit of tail missing but it is nice anyway. Good use of flash with nice lightning is his eye too. Well done and TFS,
