Let me first off start with that I enjoy this picture! I love to color choices. The blues are very vibrant, and the low lights are striking. The bird it's self is very well done. The angle, perportion and anatomy all seem to be in good shape! So what I think can be improved on, the shading is very light. The bird feels slightly two dimensional. as well with its perch. I think that the highlights on the feathers should be more loud. Your lines are clean, and the background is very beautiful. I really love seeing animal images and people trying to learn from nature. Please keep up the good work!
