I liked the idea of complimentary colours and thought a blue macaw would be as good a subject as any (Yellows, greens and blues).

It was the wing feathers that interested me in this shot. This is why the head is out of focus and left in for compositional reference.

Love the bright blue feathers. A great focus on the feathers and not his face. I like the choice of focus you picked.

I too like the focus of the feathers with his head out of focus. My head is normally out of focus so maybe that is why I like it.
Beautiful coloring. Good luck in the contest.

Cameras are like people--sometimes they lose focus.

You've captured very nicely, great blue color and very fine details of the 'texture' of wing feathers. Good luck in the contest, my friend.

Beautiful color and details. I imagine you could crop the rest out and sell the feathery bit as a stock image.
