I'm not sure what Flickr does to pictures, so it's really hard to tell much about the inherent quality of the shot. For sure, it's stripped out the EXIF data, which is useful for analysing technical issues.
Amateur Photographer used, many eyars ago, to have a renowned critic, by the name of Ricardo - who was famed for suggesting that an Alp would look better on the other side of the valley. I'm not sure if he ever suggested that you should get out of the Land Rover, but there are times to settle for the shot you can get, while remaining a tog and not a menu item.
Tracy, before you have to resort to HDR, it's worth looking at what you can achieve in converting RAW Files in the Photoshop converter, and with dodging and burning.
Only a bit more difficult?
This is definitely a shot where the EXIF data will help give you sound advice on how to improve. I think the white balance may nto be quite right here - that adjusts the sort of overall tinge of colour the picture has.
Did you use the whole of the frame here, or did you crop it down significantly? If you could post the original, unprocessed image as a modification, it would be interesting to see if there's any other cause than magnification for the limited sharpness.
And welcome from me, too. I've done a modification, as well, using both the burn and the clone tools in Photoshop elements to darken the background, and to do something about the out-of-focus bar that you couldn't avoid having in front of the parrot's neck.
Interesting shot. I wonder if he likes the way that you used the wideangle lens...
There's often a difference between technically correct exposure and what is true to the situation - or, indeed, what's true to what one saw (not necessarily the same as what was there).
