I can't add much to what's been said already. The lighting on the subject's right is too strong, the left side of his hair and the black part of his uniform have melted into the black BG and the main light is emphasizing the jersey, not his face. The pose is OK, but I don't feel qualified to offer advice there. I think the crop here is a bit too tight, but it's not terrible.

Greetings from the Critique Club

Technically, this image is OK. The exposure seems good and the focus is on the main subject. Your processing looks just fine too. From the noise/grain does look like it's been cropped significantly and I'm sure resizing for DPC didn't help. On the down side, the light seems to be harsh midday sun which makes things more "blah".

Looking at the composition, I see a few problems here. I believe that your intent was to connect the main subject(the bird flying away) with the bird on the ground. One problem that the main subject is crammed into the lower left corner while the other is way across the frame in the lower right corner foreground and out of focus. Adding to their separation is the strong diagonal line between the grassy slope and the sky/background. Secondly, everything interesting is happening in the bottom half of the frame. The shot gets a lot more interesting if you just lose the top half of the frame and go for a wider aspect ratio. Then the diagonal helps to divide the frame into thirds and the two birds are diagonally opposite each other divided by empty green space.

I'm sure that just getting this shot must have been challenging, but I also have to question the POV. When I look at the pic, there's no getting around the fact that I'm looking at a bird's rear end. If there was a frame where the bird flying away was seen more in profile than from the rear also might be a way to improve.

Above all, this some great subject matter and photographing wild birds is quite challenging so keep at it.

Skip, I think this would be greatly improved if the seed were flying.
