I would have given this a 10 if I had voted.

Maybe you are confusing opinions with pinions?

PS: for the record, I thought this was a dead bird. Intriguing photo, however.

Since yours is a real bird, I guess you have the true brown ribbon :D

Yeah, this is an attention grabber. Next task...write the novel that accompanies this image.

Such a finery of feathers, at least they dressed her nice for the viewing. If I squint, I can make out all sorts of odd and frightening heads above that decolletage.

dark not to my taste but maybe people with darker outlooks might.

I think there's a bird in there somewhere, because I see feathers.

Too dark for my taste.

Kinda of interesting dark shot, you can plainly see what it is, good take (imo) 6

Very dark image. There is a recognizable bird in there but this doesn't look much like a portrait

Definitely a morbid looking shot. Nice job on achieving that look.

I love the darkness of this. I wish I could figure out what was going on with the bird. The title didn't help. Is Alfred Hitchcock around?!

Is your title asking for no more opinions? Or is that somehow applied to the bird? I should hope you aren't telling other people to keep their opinions to themselves as that is the whole point of this isn't it?

In any case, I really like low-key images, however I'm not a fan of backside shots... Still, pretty nice (hope my opinions aren't the ones you are talking about... If they are PM me, and I'll say things.)
