Okay, I couldn't find any drummers or lords a leaping. All I could find is this old rooster. But I hope my fellow DPC'ers will find the humor. It was hard to get him to stand still, and it wasn't very light.

Congratulations! Isn't he gorgeous? Great texture on his comb. I love how you made it work with the title, excellent sense of humor. Had I voted, this would have been a 9 or 10, definitely.

This got a 9 from me. I love it. I think the only reason I didn't go to 10 was that it was really stretching the challenge envelope. Terrific shot in all ways. Congratulations on your score, and for finishing in the top 10!

Catherine, I know I mentioned the detail in the earlier post, but it is fantastic. Once again, I gave this a 7.

Congratulations on the two 6's. You've certainly earned them.

Well, you're obviously more tuned into when it's okay to not be literal than I am. Congrats on your two 6s and your two new top scores! :)

Sorry, but this isn't something from the song without the title. Nice pic otherwise, though.

I've been trying to get a decent chicken photo for quite a while. I'm guessing this lovely portrait is actually an "action shot" -- unless that guy is stuffed or anesthetized.

Very nice portrait of him, tack sharp and very colorful. Perhaps a bit of a stretch to the challenge, but a very nice piece of photography.

I really like the sharpness of this Photo, and the Humour that Goes with it
although I am not sure some of the more sterio Types will get your angle.
Good luck and I Hope the Bird Made it past Christmas !
