This is great as it is, but...
I know this site isn't really about cropping, but there is a whole different image with a greater feeling of isolation by cropping the small area of trees on the right so that all that remains after the fisherman is mist.
Well I don't know what your description says about me, cos your image made me smile - let's not go into details of why
Found this through the workshop, whilst the noise reduced version is more pleasing to the eye, it is the original capture that makes the image.
Composition is wonderful. If anything rather than worry about the noise I may have been tempted to clone out the very small piece of greenery at the bottom of the frame directly under the tail feathers.
For me this is such a good idea for a subject. To show our impact on wild animals, but I just feel that it really needed to show the eye.
Definitely a photo idea I will be looking out for next time I am at a reserve.
This is very good, just enough blur in the background to show the movement. I know how hard these are to do.
