Happy Hens       ©2016 jomari
Canon Powershot G12       8th place, 77 points
1/1250s, f8, ISO 320, 104mm, ?, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Curves, crop, increase detail, stylize a little, increase contrast, colour replacement tool to make the reds redder, clone out some pale spots and a diagonal strip on top left (this was shot through a car window as we were about to leave).       Extra Info: Happy Hens at a poultry farm of that name. (They look a little anxious to me.) They are really big.

    Thank you all for votes and comments.
The whole image has been processed using Topaz clean - that is what has given the stylized effect which is most noticeable in the sky.
My guesstimate as to size is about 20 feet tall.

    What kind of filter did you apply to the background? Some of the clouds look like cartoons. Congrats on your double top ten finish!

    I like the coloured version as well as the B&W treatment in the Main, but the composition is not as good. Still in my faves.

    This might be better if we had something to compare them to. Love the chickens, love the shot. I think the stylised sky works well. In my tt

    I like this more than your shot in the main, I assume it was yours. I see a little bit of a halo on the stands and elsewhere, but I like the pic, nice capture. It's in my favorite list, good luck.

    Like the color and composition better than the b&w version, but there's no real sense of scale. The chickens could be life-size or ten feet tall.

    I can see their crazy expression which I missed in your Main entry. So odd! Very high in my TT!
