Wow, great shot. The background yellow is a great contarst to the blue of the bird, and perfect for the month's theme.   Posted: 05/12/2023 08:28:39

It is a thinking out of box image as the yellow part is not the bird, it is the yellow background ! Good idea !!   Posted: 05/23/2023 04:58:21

The bird is sharp and stands out well against the yellow background. My only small comment would be that I would have preferred to see it looking from left to right, it's just the way the eye usually travels over an image.   Posted: 05/27/2023 09:06:01
