Hello Ricardo,
Lovely portrait.POV,colors,framing,expression on face and composition are wonderful.

Hello Ricardo,
A superb portrait, you capture the features of the bird so well!
Colours and details are awesome, DOF spot on the eye... The feather coat is very natural, pleasantly blurred background!

Hello Ricardo,
another wonderful bird in your exotic bird series. Again you presented the bird very nice. POV, colors and details are exellent. Excellent job on the blurred bg, the bird stands out from the background. A wonderful portrait.

Hi Ricardo,

A very nice portrait shot of this bird that I have never seen before. The white on the forehead is a little OE but that is a minor nit. Well done.

You are the new specialist of wonderful exotic bird ;-) This new colored bird is pleasant to see. Perharps a white spot OE on head...
Congratulations Ricardo and thanks for sharing.

Hi Ricardo,
It's a good shot with the eye clear & sharp.
Good color, detail, eye contact, and nicely framed. Some obvious exposure problems at the top of the head and beak I'm afraid..
Well done and TFS!

Hola Ricardo,

What a firework of colors you offer us here! And those colors looks so natural (maybe a little bit overexposed on the white of the head). Your pov and composition cannot be better! Very good bg enhancing the parrot! TFS,


Great plumage deatils on this colourful parrot. Maybe a touch OE on the forehead but still a good shot.

Hello Ricardo,
Another great bird portrait.
Vivid colours,a beautiful red around the eye and excellent detail.
Very well done.


Amazing natural creation Ricardo. I tried taking a parrot here and it was constantly moving. You did well in this closeup.


Hi Ricardo,
A very beautiful portrait. Perfectly composed and framed. I agree with Howard that it has just some slight Over exposure in a couple small areas. Tack sharp detail really makes the plumage look great.

Hola Ricardo,
¡Qué pájaros más bonitos nos estás mostrando! La nitidez, el color y la pose son perfectos. Hay un poco de ruido de fondo y el pico está un poco sobre expuesto, pero estos pequeños detalles no estropean la foto. ¡Buena foto!
José M.

Hola Ricardo,
veo que has cambiado las mariposas por los loros, todos bien coloridos!. Buen retrato de la cara, pero hallo la parte delantera con sobreexposición y no buen foco, pero el resto está bien.

A lovely image with great exposure control, beautifully presented,

Hi Ricardo,
Interesting capture.
Very nice details, sharp and colors.

Hi Ricardo
Your framing this bird so closely gives a very intimate feeling to the photo,as if we are very close to it,as you were.
The details are very good and the kaleidoscope of colors is very attractive.
Good series you have going here.

uma macro espectacular com umas cores brilhantes e uns detalhes simplesmente fabulosos!
Thanks Ana:)

Very nice portrait Ricardo. It somehow has the look of an oil painting. Well done. We do not see them in Africa, otyher than in a zoo perhaps. TFS.

Gotta love these parrots they make great subjects for the cameras and you captured it so very nicely. Well done Ricardo. :)

good composition and vivid colours.
