Nice shot, great comp. But the only thing I would say was to sharpen the image a tad bit, to make it look not as soft.
But its a stunning image Smile.

A cracking image and I tend to agree with Scott....needs a bit of unsharpen mask. I would also clone out that stray twing too

A first class picture of this fine looking bird. One i have yet to see also. You have taken it with fine detail and natural looking colours.

Good pose, background,exposure, could do with a little sharpening also the small twig to the right of the bird would be better if it wasn't there. I'm sure someone will do a mod for you.

Superb capture, great composition, but I think the twig at the bottom is not really adding anything to the image. Ive uploaded a mod for you to consider, with a bit tighter crop

This is a shot to be proud of Ashis, - its really good.

Not a lot for me to critiques, - just a couple of suggestions, - sharpen it a little after you re size for uploading, - Im sure the original is nice and sharp, - and I would cop it a little differently as in my mod, allowing more distance top and right.

Hope this is useful,

a beautiful image of the bird, and im sure the original is fine but i think there may have been a few degradations created when reducing and saving for web use. this is not uncommon due to the resolution permissable.
it looks to me as if you have lost detail in the white feathers on the breast and this is unusual since both the beak and golden plumage is showing full detail and sufficient sharpness. this could be due to the above uploading conditions.
its only my opinion and a minor point, but i think the secondary twig at the btm is a little distraction and i have uploaded a rough mod with it removed. i have also rotated the image slightly and provided a slightly greater diagonal to the composition. Lastly i think the lettering over the image is rarely a good idea and generally detracts from the subject but that down to individual taste.

its a great attempt and im sure it would have had a lot of clicks on the open gallery
