This is a tight crop, could I have cropped tighter?

Liked how the marabou stork has the head of the white backed vulture in it’s beak. Taken from a blind at Zimanga, SA

The tight crop certainly puts the emphasis on the activity going on. If available, I wouldn’t mind seeing the entire stork, though I could also see an even tighter crop to show the feeding and the stork’s action(nice capture, BTW). Personal preference, I guess.
I don’t think I’d crop any tighter, John. The stork’s action really adds a lot to this image.
Great story! Interesting that you were in a blind
Personally, either a tighter crop or the full left most bird.
I did a tight crop - mainly to accentuate the story. I also toned down the red ground to allow the viewer to get to the action better
Bringing up the shadows in the meaningful areas may also help
Great story - keep up the good work!
