Robin in the Snow with attitude

By Ken_Jackson
On a recent trip to the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park on a cold wintery day, hoping for a nice scenic landscape. A robin detected some intrusion on its territory, and was very determined to ensure its displeasure was known. Yes, another robin in the snow picture, but I just liked it.

Maybe another Robin in the snow picture...but great detail on the feathers. Nice shot.

Very nice shot, Ken. The detail is excellent, nice 'pose' and with a good catch of light in the eye. Nice work.

A robin in the snow is about as common as lamposts.

V2 looks to be best here- gets my vote
V1 lacks sharpness around the head and breast and the snow is overexposed.

I to go for V.2 The "This is my territory" look is more apparent. Beautiful detail in the bird. perhaps the snow needs some burning in or tweaking in levels on a seperate layer. Tony.
Superbly sharp and stunning fine detail. Excellent colours and a great pose.
