Well, they say you make an image after you take it. Thinking outside of the box, have you considered using this as a stock image for a mask over a different sky, say with a hint of clouds? I agree with everyone in that on the image alone, keep space to the right, but a hint of clouds in the sky to the right may add to it. In this specific case, IMHO rule of thirds here is very subjective.


Why don't you take a picture, it will last longer....

Studying the shot, I believe a square format would work well, with the subject kept left of centre. The plain blue sky contains nothing of interest so reduce it.

What do others think?

Sure is something to be considered. Thanks for the input.

I would position the bird a little more to the left.

I agree. Thanks.

I almost always crop these as a portrait, and like others said, the direction in which the bird is facing.

Thanks for the input. Greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your input. I do have some more shots that the background is more appealing.

I would crop this vertical. The bird is vertical, so I don't see a reason for this to be a horizontal image.
