good composition with flow lines..... would prefer to place the eye near the power point (ie the rule of thirds, not the presentation program :p)

i assume fill in flash was used? can see a little twinkle in the eye plus reflection of its beak

Good shot!! Like it. Rule of thirds? I think it is important to understand when and why it is used rather than follow it aimlessly as a strict rule. I don't see how you can effectively put the eye in the one third portion of your frame and yet retain the beak and show a good part of the bird's body. Even if that's possible, it's just one composition but following such rules blindly will cause your pictures to be very boring indeed.

Did I see blood on the beak? Nice photo, nice compo, but the eye/head is not very sharp on my screen. Handshake? I can't find an sharpest point...so shouldn't be focus problem.

Coolconnect...pain to load...but is worth it for this photo. Still...hope you can change to other image server...this photo deserves publicity oversea. Be fair to it...:)

then u can put the eyes at the level a third from the top. in this case it's too high. a little head space will be good
