Hello JP, what a beauty!! I love his colours and especially how we can see his wing and body tones too. Wonderful capture, he looks like he is having fun watching you too. TFS

Excellent details in this colourful bird!
I like your point of view, and the image is well composed...
The plumage comes through very nicely!

Nice shot, sharp. Well composed and nicely framed. However, BG seems to be OE. Yes, it is not easy to take a picture under huge different light intensities between main object and its BG.

well composed, nice pov, good dof,
tfs & regards
I like your colourful picture very much that is why I have shared my workshop. The reproduction of the bird I think is perfect. Sharpness, colours, natural pose are excellent. But the colours of BG for this nice bird is too simple, it seems to me. I have tried to make some changes. As a variant Do not judge strictly. My best regards and TFS.

This is the second Macaw I am seeing on TN today and it is as beautiful as any other, JP.
The OE parts within the frame do not cause any harm to the main subject, IMO. Maybe you were shooting under testing light conditions.
TFS and take care.

Hi Jean Paul,
Great shot of this colourfull ara.
I like the POV, the background a little to light, but we cannot have everything what we want is not it.

What a beautiful picture! Maybe it is not perfectly sharp because of the contrast, but I love its composition. Very well achieved. Congratulations

A very nice image of this scarlet macaw.The colours are very beautiful. Good composition .I like the POV and DOF.The details are clear and sharp.TFS
Truly beautiful! Nice details, lightning, coloration... everything!
Just one thing; this isn't a Scarlet. The Scarlet has a lighter red color and yellow on it's wings. This is a Greenwing Macaw, Ara Chloroptera.

This is a great picture of the macaw. I wish the bottom hadn't been as washed out, because it tends to pull your eye there first. But, the expression and the colors on the bird are great! I did want to correct you however... this is actually a green-wing macaw and not a scarlet. The scarlet's have the yellow instead of the green on the wings, and no facial markings on the white. Meanwhile, the green-wing macaws are actually the second biggest to the hyacinth macaw, and have the red facial markings on the white skin of their face. I love the picture though!
