Glen-

Perhaps it is the rather severe color contrast between the turkeys and the snow. Actually, I find no problems with the photo.

It's not a bad shot at all. You got everything right that your camera would let you do. The composition and focus are great.

The only problem is that your cameradidn't want to believe that there was all that white in your scene, so it turned the snow a little grey. This also has theeffect of hiding some of the nice details and saturation in the birds' feathers.

This is easily fixed by adjusting your exposure +1 or +2 usingthe compensation dial. (Depending on how brightthe snow is, you may have to go as high as +3) If you could spot-meter on the turkeys, youwould probably find you need an exposuretwo stops longer.

This can also befixed to adegreein Photoshop by adjusting the levels or applying a layer mask to boost both the snow and the shadows.
