One of my first bird action shots. I would like to know your opinion about this, especially processing.

A very cool action frame here, with awesome backlighting! I love the bokeh balls in the BG, as well as the contrast. Sharpness looks good, and the highlights appear slightly blown out on my screen, but that could vary depending on your screen. Only suggestion is the crop, I’d take a little bit off the bottom and a slight bit off the left. Really nice photo!

Thank you :)
I will try your crop proposition.
Highlights are certainly blown out in the water, but that's ok for me. I have brightened the highlights to brighten up the birds and keep the background dark.
