This is personal nitpicking. The name split with Shi and Gu doesn't fit with me on the title. It's not defining nor legible. The white spherical explosion also doesn't fit well with me. If you're aiming to show death, blinding the viewer from the results is a cop out. No debris, fracturing, or even the clouds dispersing? Fair enough as it's your microcosm, as shown by consequence of the crow disintegrating. The fade to white then black just feels lacking. I'd rather have the consequence of sacrifice displayed, or panning to the empty skies than that.
