Interestingly this other chicken photo that was shot in the same woods was more popular with the voters but then it is a dancing cock

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2006/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1133575.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2006/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1133575.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I do appreciate the dancing cock is much more interesting but don't want people to be put off photographing chickens:)

The only thing wrong with this image is that it is of a chicken. The lighting is lovely, the colors are rich, the pose is perfect; But it is a chicken. Next to stuffed animals, few things are going to score worse on DPC than a chicken. Why we love seeing cows and sheep but hate looking at chickens is one of life's enduring mysteries.

The lighting and focus is spot on, there is just no emotional connection for me. I would never score this image at a 5 though. 7

Beautifully captured. I really like your down-to-chicken-level pov. The feathers are nicely detailed and coloured and I like that the head is contrasted against the dark background. Top 10.

It's a really good shot of a chicken, Very nice lighting and focus with good details in the feathers. Unfortunately, it's still a shot of a chicken.

Excellent feathers-on-the-bird (my favorite kind of feathers) and I love that your chicken has sass! Solid photograph.
