Beautiful birds, well photographed. Colors came out great and detail is excellent. Background works well with their colors.

Hi Sandy, very nice image. Poses of the birds are nice as well as the colors. Really interesting perch also. Nice BG and the rain drops add another element of interest. Really cool-looking subjects well captured.

A nice combination of poses, Sandy. The perch and plants look quite pristine. I could see bringing down the highlights on the upper chest of the left bird just a bit more. I do see detail there in the largest version, but those spots still feel just a bit bright to my eye.

What a fine looking couple they make, Sandy. I agree with others about the perch, BG and the fine details. Well done.
