Oh Wow!! What a Cracker of a capture! No pun intended.You have captured them perfectly, both looking cheekly at you and that lovely sky behind, well done. Regards KathrynSmileSmileTongue

I just love your MacCaw parrots. Your style has originality. There is nothing worse than a subject stuck in the middle of a picture. The originality in this says to me that these two are mates. So originality really is telling some kind of story from the picture. Well done. WesternRed.

Great idea to have two birds in the frame when one would be the obvious thing to do. Much more interesting this way, looks good

Hi Herman.
We have a blue and gold Macaw like these two, her name is Topaz and she is over thirty years old, I uploaded a photo of her in November 2011, so i am biased, I love these birds to pieces, great capture showing their wonderful colours.

Very underexposed Herman. When you shoot into the sky, you need to over ride the cameras exposure by adding a +1, of a +2/3 exposure compensation so you dont run into this problem.

A smaller aperture would have rendered both birds sharp, rather than only the far one.

Ive uploaded a mod to show what I mean.
