detailsI post in fear. With so many excellent photographers covering our feathered friends I usually avoid a bird shoot- however he was suddenly there.

A wonderful shot Graham. Nice sharp and feather details. Eye gleam is a bonus

Robins are so friendly. Great shot.

I like it, but it seems to me that there is some noise (background).

Lovely robin, Graham. Whilst purists would disagree, I think cloning aay some of the sticks gives the bird more freedom. I also lightened the shadows a litle and bumped up the detail a touch

I like tim's edit somewhat but it still needs more sharpening

Nice close up, but sharpness missing.
