Not many people would take these shots. Great focus and DOF, not to mention colors. Ugly bastards, eh? (C: But tasty in the ol' fryer!!

You could have cloned out some spots (on the feathers, on the wall) Some more contrast and colours saturation would have helped. Good image overalll

Well done portrait, beautiful lighting on a difficult subject. Especially getting them to stop moving!

Excellent photo of a rather unnatractive head- gorgeous feathers and an amazing eye though! Bumping up one.

Yikes! I dont know what to say :) That is one crazy looking turkey.

I always wondered what they do with the heads..Now I know..they save them for the better photos!

I don't think I've ever wanted to see a turkey this close up. But this is a wonderful image! Good luck in the challenge!

Excellent framing and a good clear capture

What amazing colors in this turkey. He is very very ugly and very very beautiful at the same time.

Different shot, nice work.

great eye ...!

I can't believe I eat these ugly things. Great image and crisp focus. His eye is really intriguing as to what they heck could he be thinking about. I like this shot.

What a close up :)

What would have helped this picture in my opinion is this: The focus should be on the eye of the turkey and a blurred background would also have been a great help. This thing to the left of the turkey´s head bothers me a bit.
