I get no respect

Challenge #1 in the Untitled series. Hosted by 2thdr.
Challenge has finished
With affectionate memories of Rodney Dangerfield. We all have pictures that nobody but we, the photographer (dare we say artist?), loves. Submit a picture that did not fare well in a DP Challenge, or otherwise. Perhaps its a photo that your wife, mom, friends, significant other, etc. really never thought much of, but that you, personally, really, really like. Explain in the title and continue, if necessary in the description, as to what you were trying to accomplish and why you like it this picture. If you enter a photograph, please make the effort to vote on most if not all entries. Try to see the picture from the photographer's point of view, and then make your own personal judgment. You are also also encouraged to leave courteous and constructive feedback on one or two pictures that strike you one way or another.

I really like how I've used lots of empty space in this image and how the bird is looking strangely into the larger space... but my friends and family remain unconvinced! To me it works great but to others... ah well.... its one of my favourites anyway :)
