Even though there are some rules broken here there is something I like about this picture. It’s the crisp beak and the reflection in the eye. Also the coincidence that the eye is nearly in line with the eye of the person in the background.
Just like a good wine some photographs have to mature and deserve a second look. So don’t delete them too early.
