Soften the brightness on the bird with a curves or levels adjustment and this would be perfect!

Very nice shot, but over-composed to my eye. The crown is too important to be so far up in the corner. I think if you want to use the 'rule of thirds', then you should apply it to the crown alone, as the head and neck are secondary elements in the composition.
If that sounds like I'm blowing hot air, then that's probably what it is :-)

Nice crowned crane. One of the first birds I saw in a zoo in Western Australia and has always been the most memorable zoo creature since then (long ago). Lovely colours and bokeh is nice too. 8.

Great clarity and focus. Tack sharp on the eye. Well composed with the use of neg. space to his left.

Compostion is just on spot and the DOF is just excellent to give a nice bokeh. Very well done.
