What a beautiful bird with such gorgeous colors. He is well-focused and the background is nicely complementary. Once again I learned about a bird that is new to me.

Comment from Envision


These birds have such lovely colors and the red eye is almost as cool as the crests. I like the rich saturation of colors in this image and the nice detail that you captured of the bird.

Comment from Cephus


The head is a victim of motion blur, most noticable on the beak but also in the feathers. Composition wise the rocks coming together right below the beak are a bit distracting and image would be better if the vantage point was moved a bit to the right. With a nice image like this, a series of shots should be made and hopefully one would be lacking the motion blur.
Nice colorful subject and the eye color is in nice contrast to the blue feathers.

A beautiful specimen in a great setting. I love the profile and the great looking red eye. Nicely composed with quite saturated colors. Best of luck in the contest.

LOve you captured the fine feathers on the crest of this pigeon. The bird is striking and your lighting and focus show him off beautifully. You really nailed that red eye too. Very Nicely Done and a real joy to view! Good Luck in the Bird Contest! :o) :o Helvi

This is a wonderful shot of the strange looking blue pigeon!. You have framed it well. The light and shadows, colours and the composition have worked out well. Good luck!

A beautiful picture of this majestic looking crested Goura Victoria Pigeon watching you closely with his Ruby coloured eye set in a royal blue eye stripe his magnificent white tipped turquoise blue crest feathers quivering as he moves then his crimson breast all making him stand out from the crowd. Beautiful profile composition, framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus. Good luck in the contest.
Susan
