Very nice bird portrait in wich I like the feather details and color contrast between the red color on the head of the crane and pleasing soft green color tones in the background very much.
Exposure is spot on and composition very good.
Would love to have seen a little more color saturation, sharpness and contrast though.
Nevertheless wonderful shot.
Thanks for sharing.

perfectly clear image, excellently composed. Delightfully subtle colour contrasts of grey and red against an almost uniformly mossy green background make the image look very artistic.
With thanks, and best regards,

As portrait fan, I like very much this one!
It's so good the colours got here: the orange of the eye, so close to the red at the top of the head, what a combination!
I like also the tension showed on that turned neck for the pose.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Good close up Rob. The light is nice and flat keeping the tones in order. Like the detail in the red cap. Best, Brat.

Very beautiful shot Rob. Until I saw this shot of yours I didn't know there was a hole through the top of their beak. Your detail and colour are excellent, the composition works well too. Love that eye. Very nice.

Buen retrato y excelente composición. También me gusta el enfoque y pueden apreciarse sin dificultad detalles tan interesantes como ese curioso pico. Fondo ideal para el rojo de la cabeza.

Great portrait of this Crane. Sharpness, details, colour-contrasts and DOF are perfect.
Very good composition and POV.

Striking image. The red “beret” it is wearing stands out well on the thumbnail.
Is it a Jewish bird.( Ha- ha) it looks like those little doily’s they have on their heads.
I can see right through it’s beak, and I notice a small piece of green of the background. Thank you for sharing this photo with us. Very good portrait. I like the workshop Harry has done.

They do make nice portraits for sure.
Seems a bit different that the ones here on colours.
A bit of contrast would bring the red top out nice.
Best to you. D
