CommentThis image deals satisfactorily with the challenges of getting shape and detail into black plumage and white bill. The dark shadow running just behind the head and beak helps to provide a contrast. The brilliant red of the eye provides a nice counterpoint.The slightly open bill provides a small additional detail of interest.
Using the bird's own plumage as bokeh ensures that the tones over the whole image are integrated.
