    Hi,

    I made this one a few months ago in Costa Rica.

    I like it for being kind of abstract. I recently ordered this one on canvas (40x60 cm) and I'm really looking forward to have it on canvas.

    What do you think?

    It looks like there's too much of a yellow/green color cast. And I don't like that much flash.

    I think on a large scale this picture would be more impressive because your eye would look around the picture, taking in the different yellows and greeens, in the right coloured room, I think this would be a good focal point

    I don't mind the flash in the eye, but it takes away from the contrast on the beak (black area). I'd like to see that strong division. And maybe crop out the area behind the bird that's visible. If you're going for a close crop - crop it close.

    Thanks for your replies! :)

    Dominic, where do you see an area behind the bird?

    Think he means above the bird... (black space)

    Other than that, I love the eye detail, great focus.

    this is very nice! i love the detail. however, i would also suggest cropping out that small black area in the back.

    Hi guys!

    The black space above the eye are still the feathers of the bird.
    A toucan also has black feathers on top of his head! ;)

    thanks for your comments.

    I really like it :) I agree that as a big portrait it could really be a great focal point in a room.
