Taken yesterday at sunset. Do you think it is too minimal with all the empty space? I quite like it personally, especially with the birds in the frame:

Less is more, specially in this case. I think it has quite a dramatic impact just the way it is. Good job!

The empty space to me represents the simplicity of the scene. If that's what you were looking to strike, you've succeeded! But yeah, if there was a silhouetted fence or something like that across the scene, I'd feel the image would be a lot more busy...

Thanks for the comments, and I agree that sometimes less is more.

I like it, but do think it's a little bare. I don't even want more going on, but just a little less empty space. I think if the birds were a little bigger or maybe a couple more birds.

Cool picture though

I think cropping off a little more from the top will help eliminate the feel of empty space.

It is a very simple, clean and serene shot and works wonderfully.

Great shot.. would agree with Canon_Matt, just a little off the top, liked it even more when I scrolled down a little . I thought that it gave it more of a "panoramic look" that expanded the horizontal emptiness, accentuating the minimalist aspect of the shot.

The line between black and pink is very important, everything really.
Move it up or down as suggested above by cropping until you think its the best it can be.
Little moves make big differences.
