Hi Dave and a warm welcome to EPZ. This is a rather nice first upload, I like the way you have captured him in the sunlight. I would clone out the grey area to bottom right its a little distracting to the otherwise well controlled dof. I appreciate this was a grab shot but it could do with being a tad sharper maybe select the robin only and apply a little usm. Nice one Dave

Well captured - very nice lighting. I agree with Colin that some cloning work on the branch (?) in the bottom right corner would remove a distracting element.

Yes I like the picture too, but can I ask as a beginner why it would be better to clone the branch/fence, from the bottomr/hand corner, rather than crop the pic in to perhaps a square image?

Hi Martin , valid point which could also work though the crop needed might be a little to close to the robin, making it look cramped.
