comments from Tunde Erika:

This print is a homage to nature. A closeup of a wing-feather of a large bird of prey shows incredible strength and delicacy at the same time.

Hi everyone! Is the way this image is cropped bothering you or not? I'm not sure if I should leave the background white or make it darker.

Very intriguing. The color, the composition, that little bit of feather sticking out. There is energy and stillness in this piece. Love it!

This caught my eye immediately and I do like the crop on it as well as the contrast with the light background. Great detail--love the light in it. Really love it.

I love it the way it is. the white background makes a great contrast, like a lot of the other minters said.

Do you have a different feather or maybe a different color? I only say this because the feather looks dirty, rather than clean... I am not sure how one might feel looking at a dirty feather everyday.

Try a different crop angle. If this is a peacock feather, it will be perfect in a dark background.

Hi Tunde - I think the shadow is taking away from the composition, maybe try a version without the shadow, and maybe a version centered - showing the tip of the feather? Really love the color!

I like the crop. It almost looks like a portrait.

Thank you for all of your wonderful and valuable feedback! I toned down the shadows and recovered a little value from the background, to make the image better framed. I tried to keep the contrast. It is the feather of a large wild bird, found in a forest, that is why it's special to me, with all the texture and imperfections. In shots where a larger part of the feather is visible I lose all the texture and character.
