Decent photo but looks too "posed" for the challenge. Wouldn't make me want to read anything written about the picture. As for the photo too dark of background with no depth, just looks crowded. Cropped part of her head of and left space at the bottom - should have centered her within this. PTL3

Timely, but the shot just doesn't hold my interest - even the attempted humor. Two things distract from the picture - one, the womans head is slightly cut off on top, moving the camera down just a touch would have helped. Second, what I assume are lights in the upper right corner. The composition is nice - I like that the shot is not centered on the woman or turkey. The use of the dead space under the knife is also nice in that it helps lead the eye to the bottom.

PETA would be impressed. Eat turkey, not cardboard.

looks completely contrived...

Technically ok - lighting & focus. Re composition - I don't like the top of head cropped off; and I don't like lights at top right. Box doesn't help, but it is "imagery". I think you could have improved this with motion of the arms & knife, giving a small blur; perhaps crouching some. Its very "rigid" here.

Yeah it is a day of peace... you don't like it then don't celebrate it. :) You get a "1" for trying to sneak in a politically "correct" message. :p
