A very nice image with good detail, I think there's a stronger image here if you crop the left side to just and so past the nearest vertical twig to the bird making it a portrait format, this allows the bird to look into the frame and also gives space for it to look into, it's a nice image whichever way you look at it.
Great details and sharp.. If it change to be a portrait style straight to the center of layout then it began to be a profile shot. It goes to my fave. If you focus on all that is awful.
You will miss all that is wonderful. Great shot my friend.
Angela I know and he is most likely right buy is is still a great shot no matter what . I get the same comments and when I try it , it does look better . But the original shot is still looks great to me ???
If you read my comment Charles I said it's a nice image whichever way you look at it, sometimes a crop can make a good shot into a fabulous shot as I could suggest for your moon light landing image, a crop would improve that but that's just my opinion.
I prefer the uncropped shot.
I have noticed people on this site get a bit touchy about constructive criticism.
Thats what it should be about ,then we all can learn from eachother.
