Nice framing with the smaller birds above. I know these are hit and miss, but it would have made a stronger shot if he wasn't flying away from you. It looks to be a small crop of a larger frame, and loses a lot of detail.

The processing makes this looked sketched. The wing detail is very nice, but the head and feet look a bit odd. I like the ducks in the background.

Looks a bit washed out on the head, and the image is a bit grainy.. (what ISO did you use here?)

Still, excellent capture.
