took this from a hide, he was sitting in a broken window frame before flying off to find food. I cropped the window frame down so there was just the black of the interior of the farmhouse, and the bottom wood of the frame. darken down the whole picture via post. blacks, exposure, etc.
I can't decide if I like it or not !

A bit awkward on my laptop - I had to reduce the magnification to see it without scrolling. But it's an interesting composition when you can see it all. I think it would look good printed.

Excellent! And the negative space makes it an ideal image for a card/postcard or stock photo.

Personally, I would remove a bit more of the empty black; but overall I quite like it
