    Nice shots, James. It's hard to take shots of birds specially when they are bathing as they are everywhere (they move a lot! ). I would probably recommend some boost on the contrast to make the blacks blacker. I would also probably add some slight dark vignetting so the main focus would be on the crow. A little cropping wouldn't hurt to tighten the composition. I did some minor edit on the first image and here is what I came up with if you may allow me:

    Vignetting is more like darkening of the periphery (areas near the outside of the frame). Some lenses actually do this naturally while most of the time it can be added on the post-process work. This somewhat enhances the image by letting the focus of the viewer be concentrated on the brighter areas. Since I want my viewer to look more on the crow, I kept the crow's area brighter and then darkened the neighboring areas. It adds a little bit of punch to the image. Hope this helps, James.
