    very interesting, I like this a lot! the cropping of the image is also neat. I'm a big fan of negative space.

    Yeah, I'm a pretty big fan of negative space myself. :)

    The cropping on this is very intriguing. "Normally" you have the negative space so the bird can "fly into" the space - this is just the opposite. However, it works very well. Nice job.

    Thanks! I liked this idea too and thats one of the main reasons I cropped it that way. It seems to break up the picture a little more.

    After I look at this photo, I want to leave my office and go out for a break.


    This photo give me a feeling of the bird was being captured and trying to get out. :D
