Fun Fun Fun! I like this extreme editing! I'm so glad I finally got to enter in a challenge with this ruleset.

This is a collage of 8 different pix of 1-3 Guinea Hens, mostly 3s. Added and scaled to (hopefully) convincing perspective. LIghtened and darkened different hens to be interesting after the task of adding them in was finished.

one Guinea, Two Guineas Three guineas, four....

BTW only three guineas needed for a full alarm system. They make plenty of noise! We have 9 at times it's deafening. they are interesting creatures, they know which humans belong there and can tell dogs apart from each other.... even if they are the same color. they constantly squbble amongst themselves and if one gets seperated from the loose flock they usually travel in it's cover you ears. Needless to say, guineas are not for everyone.

Superb job of making a lot out of a few.
I agree that they are a great watch-bird. That's why they have been around so long that they are one of the oldest breeds of birds still in existence. If you ever hear a flock of them go off, you never will forget that sound.
Those little spotted feathers make a good subject for abstracts if you can get close enough to one of the birds to get the shots.

If I had a vote still, you would have just scored a good 9 from me............this is just fantastic, with mood, humour, colour, contrast, interest, and it complies well with the challenge. Good work.
