Please vote on this I need the input

I have posted two photos of a turkey gobbler in strut. The position of the gobbler in each is similar but there are marked differences in the composition and color of each.
If you were to look out your window right now which gobbler looks the most natural and briefly why?
I'll explain later why I am doing this. One photo is mine the other is not. When you pick don't be concerned with the backgrounds just the bird itself.
Thanks as always, I value your opinions.

Re: Please vote on this I need the input

number 1 looks more natural to me, the second is just too washed out, in my opinion.

Contrast is too bright in #2

Focus, composition, and color are much better in #1. #2 looks photoshopped to death, is overexposed, and looks unnatural.

I like #1 for reasons stated above. Also the angle is slightly better giving a better view of the tail fan.

Re: Please vote on this I need the input

Not to be rude and I sure hope I am not pulling out the flaws if picture 2 is yours but I really dont like that picture at all. The feathers arnt very natural looking and the head is over white. As for the first picture Im not fully in love with it either. However of the two I like the 1st much better.

#1 -- but it seems there should be a little more red in the head and black in the feathers..
