very good close up. sharp and good detail. nice composition.

Hello Arjun
this is a fine portrait with fine sharp details..the lights good as is exposure and the bg is lovely and black...But my only point would be the frame you used..It really doesnt suit the picture with the fine white line being lost through the subject.
All the best and tfs

Hi arjun,
Though this is a nice domesticated bird picture, the frame is disturbing. It is not necessary to have this kind of frame. The picture is sharp and good.You have started Bird photography at right place with right bird of peace!!. have peaceful and happy bird photography.

Hi Arjun
Beautiful, aesthetic, artistic. Perfect exposure on white. Great contrast on this bicolor image. Fantastic pure black background
Very good job

Hello Arjun,

Puzzled about framing; a personal choice though;-)
