This bird photo could be better if...

WildBird holds a photo contest each year that generates hundreds of entries. We love seeing so many folks respond to the prizes available in each category, and this year's contest offered 16 prizes.

Among the gobs of great photographs that make the judges' jobs difficult, we always find images that make us think that they could've been just a wee bit better. I'll share some for your viewing and critiquing pleasure. (Click on an image to see a larger version.)

Tip: Consider filling the frame with more of the bird.

Oooh - I'm going to play devil's advocate a little on this one Amy if I may. Whilst obviously the bird in the frame should be of key importance to a bird photography competition I don't see why a winning photo can't show a relatively small scale bird within the negative space of its massive environment - examples I've seen look spectacular would be whooper swans and tancho cranes within a snow storm. Your point would be well taken in the photo in question though.
