I'm still trying to decide if I should crop it to center on the bird, remove the bird entirly, or leave it as is..., critiques wanted

I love it, the bottom left doesn't add anything and you can put the bird perfectly on the 2/3'rds line still preserving the sky and background, thanks,

I really like this ... especially the last edit. I'd love to venture to that area sometime ... it looks like it's packed with great things to point a camera at!

I disagree that the bottom left doesn't add anything. The bottom left provides the viewer with just a little more information about the location and helps provide the natural framing for the overall image. The edited version has nothing but clouds on the left which doesn't provide a nice frame.

It is my opinion that this shot is simply too wide to be a "bird" shot. It does make an excellent landscape shot wherein the bird is an interesting element for the viewer. The clouds(fog?) At the top are a tad too hot. You can correct much of this from the original.

Thanks for sharing.

Hmm you may be right, I really want to find the right crop for this shot, something like this?

The last crop is nice, but maybe too much of the clouds at the top.

Rather then recrop I decided to make the clouds more interesting, some curves to bring out some detail and then airbrushing the overblown parts (excuse me keeping this thread alive past it's time but I erally would like this picture to get somewhere),
