I know it's not a raven, its a Red winged black bird. I took some artistic license. I just used Poe-esque as an inspiration. Just looked at it at home and thought that's what it looked like.

I like the composition & the color version better than the B&W one

A backbird shot in the harsh sunlight does not make for a properly exposed bird.

The shadow of his beak across the body is a distraction for me. And while the color version looks better the red looks washed out.

The OOF limbs in the BG cause real issues with the B&W version.

Hard shot to grab since the if the bird is brighter the background is blown. Or vice versa. Could have tried a bracket shot. I do agree with Titus that the beak shadow is a tad distracting.
