Nice image, sharpness and detail are good, though highlights are just a little burned, maybe a small minus on the EV setting and a little photoshop layer work would have solved this?

I am impressed by the very visible details of this bird. It is a curiosity for me with its long lashes and its bump on the head without speaking about the neck which looks like some leather. Colours are contrasted well and the light is beautiful. I like very much your photo. Good shot!
Je suis impressionnée par les détails bien visibles de cet oiseau. Il est une curiosité pour moi avec ses longs cils et sa bosse sur la tête sans parler de son cou qui ressemble à du cuir. Les couleurs sont bien contrastées et la lumière est belle. J'aime beaucoup votre photo.

You poor thing breaking down, hey at least you had a full stomach (incredibly full by the sounds of it) to keep you going.
A really interesting subject, not the sort of bird you see everyday which is exactly what this site is about.
Superbly captured, excellent detail. It looks to me like she's had a fight with the decorator!
Hip hip on your 100th, here's to many more.
Thanks for posting.

This is a good portrait of the ground Hornbill, what a character he is. Looks like he's has red paint thrown at him. I won't criticize his looks, poor fellow, but you've caught him well Alan. Well done.

Super photo of this very charismatic, if ugly, subject.
Nice and sharp on the birds head and good background.
Perfect exposure has brought out all the colours on the 'black' plumage.

Hi Alan, congrats for your 100th!
What a weird bird ;-) Ugly but very well captured. Looks like its head is badly damaged and some crazy artist painted it ;-) I like it!

Hello Alan, This is great! This hornbill looks almost comical to me..Maybe it's the eyelids at half-mast and the "plastered" look! ;-)) Everything looks great Alan, Well done & congrats!

Nice portrait of the bird.
It has got such a funny look.
I felt it like a wooden sculpture done carelessly.
I like the clear details and the nice colours.

It's really great to have you on Treknature.

Poor guy. He really does look the worse for wear. Very well captured though. The details and composition are excellent.
What a hideous looking bird, reminds me of Margaret Thatcher, LOL!! Great color, POV and DOF. Spectacular job on this one and congrats on the 100th post.
Your friend from the land of attractive birds like Halle Berry, LOL!
