I love this shot. I didn't even know albino peacocks existed.

I've only actually been lucky to see an albino peacock once, this brought back great memories of that time. Thanks for posting a beautiful image.

This is really stunning! I don't think I've ever seen an albino peacock, but you have certainly captured the beauty!

This is truly a breathtaking photograph. The stark whiteness of that ethereal-looking bird is stunning by itself, and the effect is amplified by the blurry veil the out-of-focus tail fearthers create. One of my favorites from this site.

I like how it fills the frame. I also like the seeming purity of the shot with the white.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 10:14:37 PM
Cool peacock, never seen a white one before. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 08:53:15 PM
Very enchanting photograph; almost surreal and quite beautiful. It fills the photo very nicely and I love how the head is so sharp as opposed to the rest of the body. Pat on the shoulder is deserve, good luck!

Never seen that before - amazing! Looks a little artificially soft in places but it's a great view and very dynamic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 02:53:55 PM
Beautiful and elegant
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 08:38:38 AM
The only (very nit picky) thing I might add to this photo, is to not have it quite so centered... the rules of thirds would have pushed this to a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 06:39:32 AM
I like this overexposure, the outcome isnow based on structure rather than the usual coloured patterns and this is very effective. Thanks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 03:24:02 AM
What a beauty! I'm in awe...This shot is wonderful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 01:17:40 AM
I have a shot of a similar subject too! Not this good though. Would have helped if the focus was on the head of the bird; it appears to be a little blurred.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 07:35:22 PM
What a beautiful lacy creature...very "ghostly" looking. Love the nice soft subdued lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 06:31:20 PM
simply gorgeous... and very elegant. 10

04/24/2005 03:04:14 PM
Incredible shot. Should be in the top 10 percentile at least. Great subtle color scheme. I'm not sure I like the extremely shallow DOF though. The focus seems to be off ever so slightly for perfection. Hope it does good.

How beautiful. I think the slightly soft focus on the white tail feather tufts really works here and sets a wonderful mood for this great picture. 10

04/24/2005 01:35:15 PM
Is that for real? I like it.

I like how the head of the peacock is in sharp focus, and how the peacock fills the frame. Great image!

This would have been great if the birds head had been in good focus. Nice crop, and I can definitely see what you were going for here.

whoa! i can't tell if this is for real, or not...the eyes are a bit dark to see if they're really pink...

all the same, excellent capture. very nicely seen and composed. i really hope this does well for you, and that people take the time to appreciate it. good luck!

Breathtaking!! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/20/2005 09:29:16 AM
Just... wow! My only criticism, stopping me from awarding 10, is the slight softness around the eye. But still one of the highest scores I am giving in the challnege - 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/20/2005 02:13:21 AM
nicely done, have tried to fotog. these a few times, not easy!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 10:09:57 PM
Wow... very interesting and stunning capture. Seems to be a little bit of an overuse of NeatIMage... but very very interesting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 08:52:24 PM
Wow! I've never seen an albino peacock. He is very elegant looking. He is just a wee bit unfocused on the puffy round feathers. Otherwise you did a nice job framing him and the exposure is good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 07:18:47 PM
Desaturation or fluke of nature? :) This is interesting. I had no idea there were albino peacocks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 06:52:47 PM
Excellent and distinctive! I like the clean processing and clarity of the feathers. There's a slight muddy cast to the feathers which probably reflects the true colors of the bird but probably could have brightened up in the processing. Still a fantastic entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 05:52:18 PM
I've never seen such a thing -- very wild -- please don't tell me it's a photoshop trick ;) just kidding

Strong composition and powerful impact.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 05:19:28 PM
Wow! That is amazing! I've never heard of an albino peacock, but it sure makes a unique and interesting picture!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 04:10:10 PM
What a beauty! The composition and light are wonderful. The only think that could have improved the photo was to have his eye in focus and a little light in it. Beautiful creature!

Stunning and unusual.

04/19/2005 01:12:03 PM
nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 09:40:01 AM
Ohhhh.... the thumbnail looked so very promising! If only the head had been in perfect focus and the rest of the image exactly the same as it is now I would have given this a 10 easy! However I still gave it an 7 just for the composition and tones in it and the monotone high key feel too it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 05:17:58 AM
Wow!

Beautiful bird. Like the feather detail. Excellent dof use. Good composition. Like the light "airy" feeling of this photograph.
