Hello? by mydigitalmind Hello? by mydigitalmind
Perhaps I got to close? Cropped a bit, but not much. It was a wonderful experience to see this beautiful bird up close in the wild.

Resplendent Quetzal

It's such a cute bird! I really don't know why you think you need a critique; I mean their is nothing wrong with your placement, focus, exposure or lighting. To be honest I think the piece is brilliant; granted a wise man once said 'you are your own worst critic' so maybe the problem is that you're not giving yourself enough credit. The only reason I gave you a four for Impact is because I have a hard time comprehending the feel or message of a piece, so don't worry about that. Anyway, you should never put your name on something you create that you don't feel proud of. That's all I've got to say.
What do you think?
