Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

it's stunning, totally 'country charm' : checkered cloth, wooden post, rope and bird and oh so daring of you to make it that tone ;)

@Lorraine: Thought B&W would be a good way to go with ths, glad you approve! :)

Vink from Grasse - French riviera, France

Excellent tones and good framing !

zOOm from Paris, France

A very sharp image indeed with interesting tonality but I wonder if I wouldn't prefer a colored version here... great DOF which reduces the vision of a cage...

@zOOm: Thanks zOOm, I wanted to do something different with this one

willow from Chelsea, United States

I love the detail of his eye and the feathers on his head - seems to be brought out by the B&W.

Nice, but I think Lorraine is wrong about the checkered cloth, looks like a fence or net to me...

@Wolfgang - vu@granby: I think you're right, the netting was to stop them escaping. Thanks for the comment
