I see some unconcentrated sadness. Last time I saw this look was when I ran out of scraps of my fish and chips and the seagulls of Inveraray became sad.

Very nice. I would have cropped from the right so that it was not quite so centered. It also needs something more to give it some "spark" but I'm not sure what.

I am guessing just hungry as these birds are never friendly. Its almost like you had him pose in a studio for you. Good shot, nice detail and the background color works well. WEll done.

With regard to composition - seems like there could be excess negative space? Good detail on the eye. I find myself wishing for a bit more texture in the feathers of the bird, but otherwise a nice job.
