not a traditional crop
how well does it work?
I have more to work with top and right, if needed.

The pano doesn't bother me per se ... but, maybe moving the eye above the centerline and reducing the mass on the right.

Great image. I like the different-than-normal panorama. I like Kent's slight adjustment.

Both work however my need for balance draws me to the original - body mass helps balance negative space at left. Neck provides a lovely curve...certainly a bountiful trip!



Regards,

Bob

I quite like the original compo. Maybe some mid-tone bump and some asymmetric and selective vignette?

Nice job on the selective vignette ... it helps break the expanse of negative space tonal values from tugging us away from the subject as much. Bump puts us "on subject" a bit more too. I might still might consider a bit of a trim to pull up the eye, but probably not as much off the right as I cropped before.

I always find it interesting to see how different combinations of compositional elements can combine to achieve a given purpose/intent ... i.e. more than one way to skin a cat.

I think I prefer Kent's composition, the negative space doesn't bother me. Karen's changes really make that egret POP!

Thanks for the feedback, illustrated suggestions.
Kent: I like your crop. To me its the negative space shape in the upper right corner that improves.
Bob: And I prefer the balance as you do. But I could combine the balance with a tighter crop at top.
Karen: Maybe a bit less natural, but quite a bit more stunning. I spent some time softening the darkish black band at the left. However your rework obviates some of that need and really adds more depth. Not sure I can emulate what you did so well, but I will see what I can incorporate.
Jo: Thanks for the additional feedback. My take home is that both crops work
