    O.K. I didn't know it was you but it is still a fine shot - should've been top 10 I think.

    Nice portrait of what must be one of the hardest birds to photograph. I would have brightened the ey a little but the composition is spot on.

    You did a good job minimizing over exposure with this challenging portrait of white against a dark background. That must have been difficult. Nice job and beautiful bird.

    Lovely composition. Too bad the beak is a bit lost in the background - but I expect that this was taken in the shade. Love the details in the feathers.

    Great photo. So close up too. These cockatoos screech over out house every morning but I can never get close to them for a photo.

    I think I know who shot this but I still say this is well framed and posed. The challenge with the white weathers is that dark beak against a darker background. Not sure if you could have lightened the beak a notch. The big downside for me? The dark eye which needs a light reflection to make it come alive.

    And he is pretty! Great focus and a nice little gleam in his eye.

    Pretty well exposed with just a small area on top of the head blown out. Nice detail in the feathers. Handsome bird!
