Lacking composition, really, I'm afraid. Has the feel of un-cropped full frame image which badly needs at least a judicious crop. I don't see what the immediate appeal is supposed to be, nor do I feel that my eye is guided through the image, and both those elements, I think, have to be strongly present to make such a simple image work.

Great idea, but it seems to me that the feathers are kind of...jumbled. Maybe it would've been better if you just used one or two feathers?

I like the texture and the details but I wish the background color was some other color than balck, as the feathers look kind of stuck and not particularly light.. I feel that a light backround would work better here.

Nicely done lighting, and good composition in the sense of balance of subject placement and negative space.
personally I would have preferred just 1 or two feathers instead of so many.

Very nice shot. The focus is tack sharp and the details of the feathers are well demonstrated. The very bottom edge of the feathers has a odd gray edge. The black background has a couple areas that needed to be cloned due to hot spots or white specks. Overall a very nice entry - just wish more time had been taken to clean up the background as this was advanced editing and simple cloning would have corrected it.
