I cracked a lot of eggs (used them for french toast) then used the shells for the photos I took:) The chick was born 4 days ago. Taken in morning sunlight on a piece of weathered wood I found and held up next to a old weathered fence post to place the chick and shells on.

Extremely nice photo. I rated this one a ten. Excellent exposure and composition. Great timing to catch the chick looking back at its old home. Looks very natural. Keep up the good work, and don't be tempted to overprocess. This photo is great just as it is. Thought you might have a winner here. All the best to you. At this pace you are sure to have a winner soon.

ahh more fuzzy logic. nice fine detail on the chick
04/28/2002 08:39:00 PM
Very nice detail. I'd like it better if it weren't off-centered.
04/27/2002 09:05:00 PM
Very cute photo
04/27/2002 11:50:00 AM
Nice shot, i like the way the bird is looking at the egg. It's like it's saying, "I was in there?"
04/27/2002 10:14:00 AM
For the record I don't think its actually a duck but I don't care.
Looks really good, I nice contrast between fluffiness and wooden texture.
04/27/2002 06:12:00 AM
really nice composition.
04/26/2002 08:57:00 PM
oh man, that's cute. move the framing left to not cut off eggshell, put baby more to right.
04/26/2002 06:11:00 PM
I think I would have kept the entire egg shell in the frame. Great picture all the same.
04/26/2002 03:02:00 PM
Great clarity! Good job.
04/24/2002 04:27:00 PM

This picture is worth a thousand words.
04/24/2002 06:26:00 AM
Nice job. I like your chick better than mine. Well, maybe not, no sparkle in the eye. I do like the clarity and the foreground Good luck.

04/23/2002 08:19:00 PM

04/23/2002 01:42:00 AM
such a cute little chicken, lets eat him! Looks like a couple of people already fried up his cousins.
04/22/2002 10:14:00 PM

04/22/2002 07:58:00 PM

04/22/2002 04:53:00 PM

04/22/2002 03:51:00 PM
Wow! Great photo!
04/22/2002 12:11:00 PM
Nice shot. Focus could be a tad sharper, and the image might benefit from cropping to get the bird over to the right a little bit.
04/22/2002 11:54:00 AM
What a cute picture!! I can already see this on an inspiration poster!!
04/22/2002 10:23:00 AM

The chick is precious! You have great imagination and skill.
04/22/2002 08:01:00 AM
I wanted to do something like this, but my father-in-law's quail don't hatch until the end of next month . . . good execution as well!
04/22/2002 07:51:00 AM
This chick looks a little older to have just hatched out of that egg. :)
04/22/2002 07:50:00 AM
