Excellent detail captured in the rooster and I like the way the red contrasts well with the B&W.

Good Capture

I find the red to strong, in my humble opinion it could have been toned down a little.

It's a great shot. Did you remove the colour from the background? If so I think it may have been better left in - his beak disappears into the grey somewhat. Focus and clarity is wonderful and that red is stunning. Well done.

This is an nice detailed shot. I love Macro shots and this chicken has his eye on you.

He might be happier if you called him a rooster instead of a chicken. 8

The red is SO vidid. It actually makes me wish there was more vivid color in the rest of the shot. I love the shapes of the.. umm... thingees. Good cropping. Little dark, but still a great shot.

This is great character - and I\'ve never seen one in this detail before. The comb[?] looks really tangible. Result - [8]

Wow another great chicken shot! This is really really nice. Amazing focus. It seems very wise.

Grumpy with perfect clarity. Perhaps a tad dark, but wonderful stuff!

very good saturation, or whatever you did to it (I'd be interested in knowing what steps you took). Chickens always look bothered, so I love the essence of your shot. Excellnt focus quality as well. I give you an 8.

very nice texture on the feathers. 8

Well for a chicken pic (I've tried to take pics of them at my parents house), this is a great shot. I love the desaturation except for the red and the eye. 8.

Great detail on the chicken. Playing with the saturation led to a picture with good impact.

Wow, is this sharp and clear!.... (you will have to let me know how you do that), great job! (I might have called it... Foul Play.)

Desatuarating really adds to this picture greatly. Good job. Good use of DOF. 10

The like the gray tone, it makes the red stand out nicely. Good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The red really stands out well. Did you desaturate the colors here? Worked very well if you did. The main subject is very sharp and detailed - 9.

The B&W - photoshop cloour trcik is soooooooo overused it's bscomeing tacky.
The red is way to deeply sturated it looks overdone.

Shame as the picture is great in every other aspect.
