    I think you've got the bird well-positioned in the image; i.e. flying into the frame.

    By deliberately going for a very high-key image, you've got to decide how much, if any, you allow to blow (i.e. go completely to white). There's a lot of that in this image. I wonder if there is too much?

    You've made a good job of getting the head steady but allowing there to be blur on the wings. Did you do anything to accentuate the blurring in PP, or was that how it was captured? I see your shutter was at 1/640th.

    I did only a very slight crop, maybe 10%. It was a very grey day. The white feathers have a bit of detail so I think the exposure is generally okay. Not sure what else i could do without just adding a fake color background. These birds flap furiously but do not fly really really fast (but fast enough for it to be a challenge).
