Overall I like it for its sharpness, but since you are asking....
You cut off the bird's foot when there seems to have been room.
Whatever is in the lower left, I think i would have included a bit more of it or none of it.
Also bird seems a bit too centered to my eye, I may have moved it to the right.
Hope that may help and just my opinion.

Marko, he didn't cut off the foot, that is the reflection of the belly of the duck.

As for the image, it seems really strange because of the position of the bird. He looks like a round, one-legged bird with a broken wing. It took me a second to realize you shot it from the backside.

I would crop to nearly fill the frame with him, rid the green at top right and rock on bottom left. I would maybe clone out all the black spots in the background.

I do like what you did there but you may want to catch the one behind his butt, looks like he is pooping! :laughing:
