- Taken from the ground level, the maker has done a very good job of capturing a super-annoyed bird. The visible eye is very sharp with a nice catch light. The background is neutral and blurred out so the bird stands out. The flying dirt emphasizes the bird's anxiety. The maker might consider flipping the image so that the bird is facing to the left.
- amazing photo of this hungry chick. The crop is too tight. If possible add room in front and below the bird.
- Great expression and title. Wing features are soft. Generally well done.
- Love the outrageous expression & sharp detail in the bird's face & throat. Overall composition doesn't enhance the expression - does all of the bird need to be shown? Consider cropping slightly left of the bird's "elbow"; reduce some blank space to right of bird's face, adding more at the bottom & reducing the top. "Splashing" dirt between his legs seems too dark compared to the rest of the ground. Must have been fun to watch his complaining!
