A very nice composition with this eye and symphony of orange tones and feathers. Excellent focus on the eye. I wonder if sleeping, it's sees what's going on.

a very attractive and intriguing image. I like very much the rhythm of the dynamic and elegant curves belonging to different features and bodies. The textures have a superb smoothness and there's a great range of orange tones, from the lightest to the deepest one their combination is wonderful. I also like the contrast between the bright colours and the dark, shady background. The eye is an irresistible focal point. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,
