The Battle of Dark and Light (revisted)

After posting last Friday's photo of a kestrel and crow, I revisited an image I posted back in March of the same birds.

This time I was trying to better isolate the action while leaving some space to show the larger scene. I also flipped the image horizontally which I think pulls the viewer more into the action and the line of the crow.

I also desaturated the background grass some and blurred it a bit more to bring more attention to the birds.

The original image, while taken with a 400mm lens, was still a distance away from the action. Thus my decision to crop in tighter on the birds.

What do you think?
