It's odd but I don't like the bird on the right in the first image, I think it has something to do with balance, but I can't decide if it has to do with the other bird, or being so close to the post. There was a time I would leave it, but I can't help but notice it and wonder how it would look without it. Personally, I might remove both of them and evaluate the image again. It's beautiful, I just don't know if they improve the story.

I like the addition of the hawk too, the lighting may be a touch off but it works so I think it's more the fog-halo around it that throws me. Leave it as it is though, but boost the lights. It will make a fanciful addition and a great image! So fun! S-
