Perhaps if you cropped this a little tighter it would have more impact. Nice idea. Huge area of blue doesn't make the bird interesting (IMO) and I want to see him!

Not much NS here. It's all crowded into the lower left.

sharpening artifacts around the bird. So much space, so little bird. I think your effort to provide maximum negative space aloowed oyur composition to suffer a little.

To make this work, the bird and the pole should be really sharp, else they do not attract the eye.

I found out that side-lighting early or late in the day is great for birds, it enhances their graceful shape.

Just my 2 cents, because I like your idea.

A little more of the post, maybe an inch up on the sky would create a better effect IMO.
