    think probably shoot from the front looks better...

    yup. there's a whitish halo and i don't know how it occur.

    lol, yeah.. i agree from the front would have more impact. but i think the bird would have taken off if i were to go to the front.

    too much empty space imho..

    would kinda prefer it to be taken at a lower angle.. maybe horizontal to the bird..

    I find the grainy structure of the ground a bit distracting. It makes it hard to clearly see the outline of the bird. I think a smoother surface, e.g. a concrete slab, would look better.

    The composition, including looking at the bird from behind, works for me. But, unlike the words in the photo suggest, the bird appears to be walking, not hopping.

    just voicing my newb opinion

    generally i like the pic, makes me wanna take some just like it

    actually i like the texture of the road, though i agree with wolf, the lines like not sharp enough, feel that the bird should be sharper and more contrasting as grey on black is pretty close already.
