I love the chicken photo!!

Maybe change the title to reflect the way people usually ask the question...
Which came first?

Just my 2 cents.

Sue Ellen PM'd me and asked for a quick response. Sorry but that's all I have time for - still slaving over that hot computer working on EI entries.

You have obviously given some thought to composition and have come up with some unique subject matter. However the lighting on both of these images is quite flat and that will keep it out of the merit catergory in my opinion. To improve upon what you have shown here- if rephotographing with directional light is not an option - lose the red deckle border on the chicken. It is distracting and does not improve the print or add to the story.

Sue Ellen,
While I'm not Keith, I did do a little work to your berry image. I added a little LucisArt to it and darkened it down plus I shifted the image around on the canvas. It's just a little tweaking, but to be fair a friend of mine entered a similar shot at states and it just missed the merit category.

Those things said, let me compliment you on your work ethic and how much you have improved over the course of the past year. You've stuck with it and paid attention and soon it's gonna pay off big. Good Luck!:)
