This looks perfect on my main monitor, but my second...not so much. My monitors were perfect and calibrated, but I had a burn in problem and BenQ replaced it. After 4 replacements of brand new, not refurbished or returned monitors I gave up. I cannot even calibrate them to be close to the same color temperature.

So to you, does it look horrendous like my main monitor, or does it look OK?

Looks fine to me. I'm impressed you got that shot with 100 mm. The turkeys here aren't quite so trusting of people.

I'm not sure what the turkey looks like in real life. Is the wattle supposed to be a sort-of faded pink salmon color?

I think you need to test with something with a more consistent color, perhaps a closeup of some crayons. You might also let us know what you are using to calibrate your monitors.


Canon 7D, 5D, 35L, 50 f/1.4, 85 f/1.8, 135L, 200L, 10-22, 17-55, 70-300, 100-400L, 500D, 580EX(2).
Sigma 150 macro, 1.4X, 2X, Quantaray 2X, Kenko closeup tubes, Yongnuo YN685(3), Yongnuo YN-622C-TX. Lots of studio stuff.

It looks perfect to me, and I am rather familiar with hen turkey heads :-D

I think the head looks perfect and I think that the blurred out background looks perfect.

The non-feathered parts of their heads are variable. . I suppose it has something with blood flow to those parts, because sometimes it will be a muted, somewhat washed out looking reddish pink colour and other times it will be a bit bolder in color.

Turkey heads will also look a lot different depending on the light that is illuminating them. When there is diffused light, such as we have here, they look like this. . When there is direct light on them, the colors usually look bolder.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I am guessing that the focus-point is on the eye of the turkey --> looks tack sharp to me as the 'freckles' are perfectly visible.
Looks like you selected a shallow depth-of-field, the black feathers on the neck look soft and to great effect.
Presumably this is outdoors, so the WB is fine
The only negative (if at all) is that this image needs PP to bring-out the colours a bit more - the neck-gonad looks pink and not red
(to me, this image is not over-exposed at all) just add-in a touch of saturation and/or vibrancy to restore 'lost' colour)

the fact that this turkey has ice on his beak gives him real character
IT IS A GREAT CAPTURE!

Given the subject it's hard to tell if this is a positive comment or a negative. <G>

Thank you all very much! I've used a Spyder 2 and a Spyder 3. I have never had a BenQ monitor and was in love until this happened. I am so pissed. I might get rid of them both and start over. It sucks knowing what your image looks like to you and then you post it to think "What if it's extremely dark on their monitor?", "What if it has too much or not enough color?".

I took a picture of the split monitors with the image. Ignore the lines from the cell phone image. You can see the "blue" tint on the left that I cannot get rid of. I edit the image based on the right monitor. I just use the left for work.

That is her colors thus far though. People say it's a tom, but I say it's a hen. It will be 6 months old tomorrow :). It's a salmon color, no red yet.

Cham,

I am curious about why you suggest adding more saturated colour, when it looks to me like April captured the colour exactly the way it really is in real life.

The real, actual colour in hen turkeys heads is usually a very muted, washed-out looking salmonish pink colour. . This is what they really look like. . Making it a stronger, more saturated reddish colour would not be consistent with reality.
