Bom dia Erwin,
Great shot on the bird, but I don't say the same about the other image elements, especially the trunk and that ugly scar OOF.
I suggest to do a crop isolating the bird.

The first thing I looked at was the date this photo was taken. I saw it was some time back. The bird;s detail and surroundings are clear, colourful and well in focus with good detail. Absolute eye contact. Well done.

So curious eye has been captured? almost we can tell, what he or she is asking(are you taking my portrait?) another lovely wild life poster well done as always ERWIN KRUGER

Hello Erwin,
Absolutely beautiful image of this bird. They used to visit my garden but I have not seen them for two or three years now and I suspect it is because of the spraying of pesticides in the citrus orchards. The Cape Glass Eyes have also disappeared. I agree that the left part of the image ought to be cropped off and the bright lights in the background be cloned out. Nevertheless, very good as is.

Hi Erwin,
A great capture of the bird but it looks more like a photo of the plant with a bird on it - the stalk of the plant seems to be the main subject.
