This image is very well taken - the bird is sharp, DOF is good, colors well done. I think where this could be improved is in the crop. The bird is facing towards the right so if you cut the left third of the image, it would put the bird looking across the image. This would make the image more dynamic. We all know of a peacocks huge array of feather so, even without it in the image, our minds fill it in. Doing this would bring the bird closer to the viewer for a more intimate shot. Also, as it is, we cannot see his eye or what he might be looking at. Very slightly lightening the eye or the space around it would make the eye stand out. I would bet, with those two changes, this image would score a point better with the DPC voters.

Lovely shot and centering is effective for this. But seems to be a bit out of focus.

Beautiful patterns. The images seems overly contrasty or something. That works well for the pattern in the feathers, but it makes it hard to clearly see the bird's face. Nice idea and nicely executed.

lighting is a little flat and looks a tad over processed. I like how it fills the frame. 5

Lovely framing. You have filled the frame with the pattern. It draws the eye in. Well done.
