A Competitive Turtle?

ISO 640 f/4 1/15 50mm

I have entered this turtle into a competition at my camera club.  I shot it handheld with a 50mm lens.  I cropped it and sharpened it in post editing.  The lighting was a bit difficult.

What do you think?

A Chicken for Competition

I have entered this photo in a competition that has “macro or close up” as a theme:

ISO 200 50mm f/4 1/250

I titled it, “In the Blink of an Eye”.  It was taken with a 50mm lens and then cropped. I did some sharpening, but didn’t mess with the color because I liked the way the color came out in the camera.

Wish me luck, but feel free to leave constructive comments.
