Tough choice...I like this one the best because it the rooster couldn't have been easy to rebuild its legs and that coat couldn't have been easy to do either! The reflection on the bullhorn is also well done. The other is good too, I like the surrealism in it but I feel like it could have been done with almost any source picture. It's not really utilising the source to its full effect.
FFS! The toughest matchup to decide for me! I like both, damn. Pff, why in the world the other didnt get another opponent to help me ? :) I feel weirdo now and i think i 'll go with this one, but definetelly i see both images more than enough to pass in 3rd round :(.... GL
