This is a really nice shot, the contrast of the Robin against the frosty background works well. However, I see that your aperture was set to f32 which has meant that your shutter speed is really slow at 1/10th of a second and also shooting at such a small aperture can lead to the image loosing its sharpness due to diffraction. If you had shot this at say f5.6 your shutter speed would have been much faster and the image would have been much sharper and you would also have been able to probably bring the iso down to 200 for a cleaner image.

The haloes around everything here (and the odd black spots) indicate that there's a lot of sharpening been applied, and to a shot that isn't terribly sharp to begin with, for the reasons that Andy's set out.

It's also got a distinct blue cast to it, and the subject (which is wonderful) is rather central.

I have the feeling that you may have cropped a smallish section from a larger image: and I can understand why, because it's a perfect symbol of hope in the depths of winter.

An unmissable shot - and it would be great to be able to reshoot with settings that will give the highest quality your equipment can deliver, zooming right in, opening up the aperture, and possibly adding a little plus exposure compensation.
