CommentThis was another shot I got from yesterday - I have gone back and forth trying to decide about it. On the one hand, the balance to me feels good, but I also feel like I want to see what the bird is looking at - outside the frame. The OoF branch for me adds another layer of depth , but is a bit larger than I would prefer.
Unfortunately there isn't much else on the right side from the uncropped version, and if the image is left uncropped then bird feels too small in the frame.
Any thoughts, or suggestions on why you feel this works or doesn't work would be welcome :)
