    I'm not sure what to say and could be dead wrong here, but I'll take a stab.

    Seems to me that you should either make it a total shilouette or give us more detail in the geese. :? Otherwise, I like the composition etc.

    I think he's absolutely right. The hints of detail take away from the picture as a whole. It's like you strain to see if there is more detail in other places which gets pretty tiring.

    This may be just me, but I'm also a bit distracted by the signature line on the bottom of the picture as well. I don't know if it's just too bright or too long. I think if you either tinted it to more of a grey or made it less opaque, it would be better.

    All that being said, I think the title is wonderful. Especially for the subject and the picture is very well thought out. The composition, angle, and crop are all superb. Hope all of this helps.
