I wanted to take a close-up of the colourful plumage of a chicken, as an abstract shot. Of course, it moved just at the wrong moment. Still, I like the colours, and the blur reminds me of art works by Gerhard Richter. Moreover, it received high praise from one of my favourite photographers on Flickr, Lorraine Kerr : "absolutely gorgeous result".
