Very nice capture of curious dove.I liked clear details,eye contact and lighting a lot.Branches at right side of BG is a little distracting and would be better if you cloned them.Overall great work.I prepared a workshop hope you dont mind.

Wonderful capture of this dove. Very sharp and great lighting.
Nice portrait you did here. Lightning is good as well. The only thing i regret for a bird picture is that the tail is hidden. The tail is something essential for a bird describing.

Excellent capture, love the lighting and the detail on the bird is immaculate. I think the branches is a great habitat for the bird...not distracting at all...

Congratulations on your first bird shot, I look forward to seeing more. A great shot of this Dove, excellent light and a great exposure, I think it is quite tricky because of the light on the Dove's head. Fantastic detail and great colours, very natural. Great DOF too and nice light in the background, well framed. I think this is better than the workshop image, the out of focus tree on the left provides a natural border, rather than looking cut-off. Excellent work.

What a BEAUTIFUL dove.
I love birds.
Three colours surrounding the pupil of its eye.
Remarkable detail. On the top is a tiny white dot. Looks like the reflection of the ??? sun?
Excellent camera or its user??? Both.!!!
Very clear photo. No distractions.

Technically outstanding image.
I like the natural light displaying the dove's details and colours so well...
In addition there is the greenish background which has a lot of vibrance.
