[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my husband's uncle's pet parrot, "Austin". His wings are clipped so he is unable to fly. The family oddly carries around an old guitar stand which serves as a perch. Austin is pictured here chewing the arm of the guitar stand.

Awesome colors, I really love this !
I enjoy this choice of pov and excellent focus, the bg is very sweet, it's a beautiful harmony for the eyes.
Very good details and lighting management.
A pretty portrait of Austin.

Hi Paul and Roxy,
Perfect sharpness on the plumage of this parrot, quite busy eating his snack. Perfect focus on the eye and absolute glorious lighting.
I like the crop you adapted.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paul & Roxy.

Perfect closeup of this parrot, spot on with the focal point, amazing clarity of detail and textures to the feathers. I like the pose and the difference of colours captured, welldone. tfs

Dear Roxy,

This is a fantastic closeup capture of a colorful parrot!
The light is amazing and colors are natural.
Good contrast against a well blurred BG.
The details on the fur of this lovely bird is breathtaking, as I count even each hair of this fellow.
Well executed work!

Kind regards,

Hi Roxy, so full of colour and detail. I love the fine details around the eye. Fiona

Hi Roxanne

Austin is quite a beauty! Like your POV here, focussed on eye contact between the viewer and Austin. The little spot of reflection in the black eye is very striking! Overall, excellent sharpness and detail against a blurred BG, the colours are striking and the light is well managed.

Nice subject indeed!
