    These are my first attempts at capturing a peacock. Any comments and advice is welcome.

    Thank you both for looking and for commenting, I appreciate it.
    The difference between 1 & 3 is that the peacock is looking in a different direction. I included both of these as some people say that the animal should be looking to the right for a good composition while others say the opposite. I guess it's really down to personnal taste.

    nice shots!! doesnt look like your attempts at capturing it worked out... but at least you got some awsome photos of it! :p

    My fav is definitly number one... better catch light in the eye, you see just a bit more of the bird as well as its little hat thing, and theres lots more "eyes" staring at you. though, like you said, if it were flipped horizontally, i would like the compo much better.

    thanks for sharing!

    I really like the third one. #2 could've had a different DOF so the whole photo is in focus.

    My favourite is the first.
    Why is it that that animals should look to the right for a better composition?

    All I miss in 1 and 3 is the peacock's chest. I feel that is really missing here (like feet that got accidentally cropped off in people photos).
