Camera: Nikon Coolpix 8800
Location: Studio
Date: Nov 25, 2006
Aperture: f/3.6
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/30 sec
Galleries: Animals, Rural
Date Uploaded: Nov 25, 2006

Background contrast and brightness adjusted, subject adjusted separately. Hue and saturation adjusted, selective dodge and burn, Highpass filter. Cropped and sharpened.
The shadows effectively draw attention to the tail feathers, so I decided to leave them.
Thanks to Gracie, the chicken wrangler, and Chloe, the model (a sweet little bird)!

I love chickens! The shadow over her back is a bit distracting, otherwise very nice!

Beautiful image. This proves that chickens can have expressions :) This image has an incredible diagonal feel to it (I know, it's the other challenge). I really like this one. ~9

Looks a tad underexposed. Your whites aren't truly white...

I love the composition. Wish there was a bit less gray / brighter whites.

I love your photograph and the detail/lighting is so nicely done. The red face really stands out, as does your image! Chickens are interesting-looking animals.

the position of your "model" in the frame works well but I find the light a bit too harsh
