Another fine capture Timothy. You asked for a critique on what looks like a very well composed and captured shot of this rather handsome Peregrine Falcon Timothy. However after much cogitation and deliberation the only real piece of advice or criticism I can make, is that I feel the bird is somewhat constrained within the frame. Many of those who choose to photograph and upload images of birds allow enough space in which the subject can move into. Superb examples of this can be seen in Brian65's stunning portfolio, as well as others. My advice would be to study images of birds and develop a feeling for what looks right and isn't.

Just a bit more space in front of the birds head, and I would lift the brightness just a bit. A touch dark roundcthe head.

Hi Timothy, I have to agree with the above comments. You have the makings of a wonderful shot as it pin sharp and has plenty of detail. It's not necessary to fill the frame with the bird as you can loose the feel of it's surroundings, it's also important to get the lighting correct so that the bird stands out and does not blend into the background.

In my mod, forgive the cloning, I have increased the canvas around the bird and used the lightening tools . Although the rule of thirds is not something you have to adhere strictly to, it does give you a guide to where the eye fits roughly in the frame.
