good detail in the statues, light on the right wing seems just a touch overbright

Fun & clever idea. I brought it into photoshop to play a little, and I'd recommend selecting the background and lightening it to almost a white. I think keeping the background white, or perhaps using a softer brown/beige for a backdrop would make it stronger. The grey tone doesn't work as well with the wonderful browns in the rooster.

I like the concept of the photo, but
I see a lot of banding in the seamless.

what are the streaks in the background of your photo...maybe it is my monitor...(yes, I have cleaned it)...would have liked this better in B&W

This is a good photo. I think however that the white background color not being highlighted/bright enough might cost you some points.

Another thing that might cost you is the lack of sharpness on the roosters.

Try a version of this in Black and white. It might stand out more since there is not much color to this photo.

It is framed very nice and the DOF does blurr out the background well.

I cannot vote on this since Greg told me this was yours, but I figured I would give you some input on what you could watch out for next time around on DPC (yeah they are a picky bunch). If I would have voted on it without knowing it was yours I would have given it a 5

The lighting almost makes this look like a snap of a painting.
I feel like the two Rooster's should be jumping out of the page.
I really enjoy the image though.
