Delightful Robin capture and pose, Janet - lovely plumage tones and great catchlight in the eye.

Hi Janet, you have captured a fine Robin here.....just one point though, at the moment you have the bird pretty well central in the frame.......you need far less canvas on the left to give the bird space to look into, this will improve your composition. Your previous shot was about right, hope that helps,
Geoff.

Paul thanks I am glad you like the setting I am trying to get natural shots but they do pose quite a few probs.

Geoff really appreciate you taking time to comment, SmileI kept looking at this not sure whether to crop or not, as something just didn`t look right. I see what you mean, placed where he is just doesn`t work.
