Hello Foozi,
A beautiful bird, love the striking blue of its plumage combined with the fair color of its breast. Good framing too. I just regret thet your signature is a little too big.
Take care.

Very nice close up portrait with environment. Well done. :)

Hello Foozi,
Truly a gorgeous bird which reminds me so much of our Eastern Bluebirds. Love the wonderful eye contact and that tad bit of catchlight. Colors are rich yet natural and focus is tac sharp. A pleasure to view such a pretty bird!!

Hello Foozi,
Another lovely catch,great details and colours.
Thanks for sharing,
Best regards...Joy

Hi Foozi.
It is clear, I have never meet such beautiful birds. You have pictured it fantastically. Every detail of the subject is simply stunning. Colors are also wonderful. Framing of the scene is the best too. Bravo. Well done.

Hi Foozi,
Except for the big watermark which immediately grabs the viewer's attention, this is an excellent image. Perfect sharpness and colors on the bird (the color contrast between the blue and yellow is awesome itself, too), who beautifully posed for the photographer. Great eye contact with the model and fantastic composition. Probably a little noise reduction wouldn't hurt to this otherwise great photo, but it's a minor issue. A picture to be proud of overall.
Best regards, L嫳zl
