|Tough to guess what voters will be looking for, but I certainly would think "colorful bird" when looking at a peacock picture. I suspect something simpler, maybe studio shots, will score better. We'll see.
Had a shot of a zoo peacock but was unhappy with the noise in the background which was really ugly in B&W, so went out and shot another peacock today. Not a terribly original pose but I'm happy with the DOF and detail and the patterns in the background. C'mere, 5.0!
