GREETINGS FROM THE CRITIQUE CLUB

First Impressions:
captured nice color here on the turkeys heads

Technical (Comp, lighting, color, focus):
Your compostion is fine but seems to me the background is very busy. I realize it's a wildlife shot and you can't really set it up, but blurring your background some may have helped with this. Also, as mentioned below getting rid of the road would be very benifical to this shot.

Challenge:
Your shot meets the challenge very well.

Artistic/Emotion:
Not sure this is a great artistic shot, looks more like good luck and as you mentioned in your notes you came over the rise and there they were. Frankly I'm surprised they didn't run away from you!
Your title is the emotional kicker on this one.

Summary:
You lucked up and got a nice shot of turkeys! :-) BTW, I'm not knocking "luck" in anyway - I'm quite a fan of Lady Luck myself.

EDITED TO ADD THAT THIS IS FROM THE CRITIQUE CLUB

Very nice portrait of 2 Gobly de Gooks. Reminds me to pour myself a "Wild Turkey" on the rocks this evening. 7
