Lovely shot of a robin. Nice catchlight in the eye, but I would crop out the wire fence as I don't think it adds to the picture. Also is his tummy a bit overexposed? You might be able to tone it down a bit. Just sayin'!!!
Great idea. I wonder how it would look flipped horizontally so the smoke comes from the bottom left corner and travels to the top right. As we (in the West) read from left to right flipping osme images gives them more impact. My tuppence worth.
