Personally, I'd have included the head feathers (the ones sticking out) more than that extra-bit of space on the left side, but other than that it is fine (for me) and the decision to leave out any color was a clever one too. You certainly made me wonder! ;)

They say never work with children and animals....The framing of my shots is almost always off which is due to my experience with the camera, or lack there of and a conscious decision to set the subject out of the centre of the frame. Sometimes it works sometimes as you noted it feels off, thank you. My choice to make this B&W is because I had to shoot at a high iso in low light which made the colours muted. Removing the colour turned a bad shot into something usable.

That's perfectly acceptable, I use this strategy for some shots of mine as well. ;) :shh: Alas, children and animals are such fascinating subjects! :love: And kinda off framing can be certainly interesting; sometimes more so than ideal framing. As far as I'm concerned...
