Congratulations Oli on the new quality gear. You have given it a good test with this excellent Robin. You could perhaps have cropped a bit of the empty space on the left side. That would have allowed you to give the main subject ( your Robin ) a good deal more emphasis. He is a good 'un and deserves to be seen in all his glory. Lets hope we see lots and lots more.

Thanks for the advice Ron, i thought that the left hand side gave the Robbin a bit of room to move into, but I will upload a new version having croped a bit. Thanks again.

superb robin shot I like the new crop but and there is always One - he needs more room at the top giving him room to stretch up more or even fly (not too much tho about 1/2 an inch or just slightly less than that) and your onto a winner - well done

Very good capture, I likeV1, I think a wild bird needs room to move, but it all personal preference in the end. Happy hunting with your new camera.

Great shot. V2 is so good because the quality of the original can take the crop. It is about equipment but most of all it's about a steady hand, knowing your settings and timing. I think the suggestion for a bit more headroom is really sound advice. Well done.
