[IMAGE TOO SMALL, NOT RENDERED INLINE]

I think I reduced the noise so much that I might have lost some quality in the feathers... makes it look blurry, no? How's the cropping?

A little blurry. Nice colors but clone out the hot spot behind the bird.
Is he standing on one leg?

Ha ha...looks like it. I do that all the time in panoramas and things. He may actually only have one leg, or maybe he thinks he's a stork?

BTW, I like it. I know where to find a few peacocks and have plans to go and shoot some (with the camera, of course!).

nice! I really like the crop. If it were mine, I would experiment with added just a touch more vibrancy to the color (but not too much). Looks good though. Some of the feathers aren't tack sharp but the main guy is dead on so it doesn't really hurt the picture much. What was your aperture/shutter speed on this one?

He used 1/60th at f5.6. The peacocks "shiver" their tail feathers when showing off, don't they...was he doing this when you shot him? Could that be why there was some blurring?

One of those must have shots, a shame about the softness.

I did everything I could, can't get anything good out of it. Will go back to the zoo just for that sucker (it's free anyways)
