I like it being a bit brighter, Brian, and having the leaf edge going into the corner. The highlights on the head and feet show up better, too. It's a cracking image, whichever version you look at.

a fantastic macro of a robin's dinner!
And like Ronnie says, it looks so real, a bird could almost pick it up!

Now you knew I'd fall over this sooner or later Tongue Absolutely stunning image Brian and one I wish was one of my own....Have a well earned user award, it deserves more IMHO, but I'm biased when it comes to images like this and of my fave subjects!
