Wow, what a marvelous photo.
DOF is perfect, the colours are beautiful - so intensive. This eye seems to be unreal - phantastic. Congratulations

You are very naughty, Jaap. I was about to give you only one point for being rude with your wife, when I read the end of the note. A nice person like you must have a nice wife too, so please tell her that your friend Felipe likes very much her shot. Very well done.

Excellent portrait, well done on the composition and details. Crisp. Excellent work.
A run through neat will rid of noise or using the blur tool to blur background will rid of the noise.

Sensational looking wife, Jaap!!
And it appears that she only has eyes for you...plus a few other parts I can't imagine what they are.
Great job of capturing so interesting a creature.
My compliments to the husband/wife team for this lovely portrait.
Well done on this colorful, detailed, and sassy composition.

Prachtig portret van een koningsgier.
Ik heb hem ook vele malen op de foto gezet in avifauna.
ik vind ze zo koddig met dat worteltje op de neus.
en dan hun ogen.

Beste vrouw Jaap,
Even schrok ik. Na de titel dacht ik: "Dat moet niet meevallen om met Jaap getrouwd te zijn". Gelukkig las ik dat niet Jaap maar u de foto gemaakt hebt.
Nou, daar kan Jaap nog een puntje aan zuigen. Prachtige prent. Ik kijk uit naar de rest.

Ha...I like this one Jaap.I can identify with the title right now.
The photo itself is superb.Tell your wife she's a very good photographer.She should have her own account on TN.
The details and colour here are superb.Its a little bright,obviously a tricky shot with the sun almost behind it.
I'd possibly darken it a little myself.
Its great as it is though.
Well done your wife.

Nice close-up portrait with good detail and brilliant colours. Good title too, though you may want to put these type of comments at the top of notes rather than the bottom .. just a thought ;o)

Hi Jaap, nice shot here, BG is a bit messy but that's hard to arrange through a cage so no real nit there. Beautifully sharp and clear with heaps of detail. Tell your wife she does a great portrait! Like the title and note too :)

LOl... ummm Well... Jaap, may the force be with you... after you have called this shot as your wife portrait. :P
Excellent composition, great colours, details and sharpness, bg is a bit noisy (over sharpen maybe?) but it is an excellent shot! Good on your wife, very well captured, thanks for sharing and have a good weekend. :)

What a beautiful wife you are!. Good idea to show your wife, I must post one of mine (ha, ha, ha).
Excelent colours and details.
Very good note, but...It inhabits until northern Argentina, not southern.

Wat moet ik nog zeggen, er is al zoveel over deze foto gezegd dat mijn verhaal eigenlijk niet meer nodig is. Alleen, ik heb in jaren niet zo'n mooie vrouw gezien. Ik ben echt jaloers.

Un primer plano increíble Jaap, por la nitidez en todos sus detalles, por un colorido espectacular y un POV perfecto para mostrar el perfil de esta maravillosa ave.
Sólo criticaría un ligero ruido de fondo, que no desmerece la visión del protagonista.
Incredible close up Jaap, for the sharpness in all their detail, by a spectacular coloring and a perfect POV for to show the outline of this wonderful bird.
I would criticize only a slight background noise that non be unworthy of the protagonist vision.
