Thats quite a large Stork. A good shot, and it does convey somewhat the feeling of freedom.

You need to apply a little more sharpening to the re sized image before you upload, - Im sure the original is sharper.

A positive exposure compensation would give more wing detail, but the exposure is good. The wings can be improved by lifting the shadow in Photoshop.

Ive loaded a mod with this done, sharpening, added sky into the white areas.

I think this would be a great shot, if only you had got the whole bird in. And as Willie says about the sharpness.

I would not have used full aperture for this shot for the reasons that I have stated on many, many occasions. Give the focal length in use you need a fast shutter speed, which you have, so in order to be able to stop down, to have a better chance of getting the bird in focus you would need to increase your ISO rating.

You were a little unfortuante that with a fixed FL lens, the bird was a bit too close to be able to get it all in your frame, which as mentioned by Sooty would have made a big difference.
