    Jack looks like a saucy bird. Nicely cropped, great detail and colour. In my faves.

    Thanks for your votes and comments - Jack is alive - he is not my pet - he lives at the vets office - I take his pictures when I am at the vet with one of my pets. He was sitting in a dark corner so I had to use the flash. I usually take a side view of the eye, which I did this time but I had also taken the front view and I liked the way it came out. It was more in focus than the side view.

    I love the way the textures, especially the skin textures, show up - and the scratches on his beak. Nice in-your-face portrait.

    I think I would prefer a side view with the eye being featured. Here the beak is dominating the image.

    About as "In your face" as it can get! Like the color and the detail in the feathers.

    Is Jack alive? How did you ever get such sharpness on an animal at 1/30th ??! Wonderful colors

    Jack looks like a real character. Good crop and dof. The colours work very well together too. I hope Jack approves! Kudos.

    Who's a pretty boy!....Great detail and nice colours, but I wouldn't want to be that close to his beak.

    I miss my parrot! I have a soft spot for birds, specifically parrots. You cropped well with this composition. I feel maybe if you isolated an eye or the detail in the beak it would have been interesting. I notice that the parrot is not trying to destroy the lens so I assume you weren't too close, and at 38mm you must must have been some distance away. I assume you then cropped quite a bit to get it where it is. Doing this increased the DOF. That said, the "all in focus" might work, but the dull coloured background is just the wrong hue. Also you would have done well to apply some sharpening, especially the unsharp mask. It would have brought out the lines and smaller details in the feathers and beak.

    I can tell you used flash here, making the image flat lacking depth. Natural light from a side works well.
