I never made it though all the photos. Got most of the way though, but didn't get to this one.

And that is the ugliest thing I have ever seen. But such great texture. Would have given you an 8 probably.

i can't see this not winning
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2004 12:06:16 AM
If a two dimensional image can make you uneasy with the subjuect's texture, it has nailed the texture in question. 10. I hope the highly valued cute factor dosen't keep you from winning

02/23/2004 07:59:27 AM
amazing textures - pretty disgusting too ;) Only bad point is the lack of detail on feathers. 7

Nice shot of a very UGLY bird.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2004 07:34:16 AM
Hideous, hideous bird. It looks like a pile of maggots crossed with someone's exposed intestines... that or the after-birth of a yak. You did well to capture the essense of this disgusting-looking bird. 9... uugh, you're lucky i'm not penalizing you for how much this photograph actually turns my stomach. (good work with the colors as well)

You know I don't know if I could eat Turkey again without thinking of this picture. This looks nasty as heck but it is a great picture.

That's one ugly looking bird, but a terrific photo. Colors, focus, and composition are striking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2004 09:45:04 PM
yep, lots of texture - to make this fine shot better, I'd like to be closer to the head (photographically speaking - not really in real life lol)
02/19/2004 09:03:34 PM

This turkey looks so sad. There is a sadness about him... Powerful photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2004 06:29:20 AM
Man those things are UGLY!
Great picture.
Colour, composition & exposure are spot on :-) Maybe a little dark on the feathers.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2004 01:16:30 AM
this has got to be the ugliest animal in the history of ugliness. wow. what texture though. looks a lot like intestines or something. I will never eat turkey again. ugh. my only glitch with the photo is the large black blob near the turky's head in the background. wish that weren't there, but otherwise a very nice shot for the challenge. ew again. ~Heather~

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2004 02:04:58 PM
Well, I don't know how you could have done better in the Texture Department. this guy is quite the subject! I can't call him beautiful, but he should be a winner. (wish he had a catchlight in that eye of his) 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2004 01:49:16 PM
I love it! Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This one should gobble up top marks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2004 11:41:01 AM
This is one ugly sucker..lol but boy does he have textures, and it is a very well done shot, my only slight critique would be the black area is lacking in detail, of course very hard to get detail in black. My favorite shot I think in the challenge, good luck..great color and DOF too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2004 10:56:59 AM
good lord! that's one ugly bird!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2004 10:53:01 AM
Ugly! Great texture shot, however. Very nice composition with the diagonal lines of this guy. Good use of DOF and spot on focus really presents the texture in this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2004 01:52:12 AM
eww - 9
02/18/2004 01:12:21 AM

Loads of texture, but...... my stomach is just a tad weak for this.
