Some of your comments attached to the voting
"Excellent portrait shot" "Good steam, nice capture round the bend"
"Sharp with good detail throughout"
"Excellent capture, perhaps a little over saturated" "Good Photoshop exercise"
"Clever composition nevertheless." "The sun’s reflection has just tipped the exposure over the top in some places".
"A real cheeky looking chappie. Lovely shot of this amazing bird.
Some loss of detail in the front chest plumage due to a slight over exposure."
"Just an excellent shot. Sharp subject and great Bokeh. Full faced would have got top marks."
"A rare appearance. Lovely sharp colours captured well." "Great portrait shot. Just missing a flower in the subject’s hair."
"Great Monochrome image"
I think overall its been a good and interesting competition.
