i think there should be more room to the birds left (our right) and less room to it's right (our left). and a bit more room top and bottom. in other words i think the biird should be a bit left of center as we look at it. just my opinion.

I like the idea of an un-orthodox crop as you have in the first picture, with the bird all the way to the right. It maybe runs against convention in the way we typically like to view photographic subjects.
That said, however, the obviously man-made cable is too much of a contradiction with the natural subject. I think the cropping combined with the clashing of man-made material and nature is too much. Had the cable been a tree limb or a naturally sloping rock, you may have a better chance of getting away with this kind of presentation.

Ya...I kind of like the second one. No worries about him being on the far right, it looks great. Best regards,
