    Magnificent bird. I think you're cropped kinda too tight- I want to see more of him - and I think a lower lens position would work better.

    Good advice - especially the lower camera position.

    Definitely the most beautiful birds by far!
    The picture looks slightly soft to me, and as marionet and grandpa said, a lower camera angle would have worked a lot better

    I had the pleasure of seeing a peacock on brownsea island, UK...

    Nice effort. Try increasing contrast with levels and/or curves and just a smidgen of saturation in hue/saturation to make it pop.

    I have to agree with the guys, seeing more of this spectacular bird would be a treat for everyone especially with the feathers fanned out.
