These are a few shots i took today. I spent the entire day taking pictures of Robbins and Blue Tits and Hedge Sparrows, I was ment to be fishing but the ponds well all frozen with ice, so as i took pictures the regular fishers Gambled playing 3 card brag.

I would love to know what you all think of these?

All the comments and pm's i got on the Water Drop were amazing Thanks to everyone who did it was very appreciated!

ahh its Less than 2 weeks till i get my new Camera! GrinGrin

Some nice detail in what looks like harsh light.Could do with a little more space around the bird I think,especially for him to look into.
Nice catchlight in his beady little eye.

Hi Stuart, as Janet says zoom back a bit a let us see a bit more of the birds surrounding, you don't have to fill the frame with the subject,
You have the detail and colours.
Number 4 is my fav.

its very tightly cropped and a bit of space to breath is nice, but the main subject is beautifully exposed and has the obligatory catchlight in the eye, its nicely positioned and very sharp.
whats this about a new camera then?

I think they're superb, I think the tight cropping helps make them stand out from the Robin crowd and I really like the light in v5

Sorry, I do agree that v1 and v3 are a bit too tight but v2 is spot on (imo)

Wonderful detail and focus........i sometimes get over excited with cropping, as i want to get more of the subject in to show off the detail etc.....if this was out of the camera crop, then it is well worth the sacrifice of space around it for the fact that it is in focus and the detail is there....

So pleased to make it 30, for me V1, V2 and V3 cropped a little tight but V4 and V5 OK, lovely set of shots though.

As Geoff says lovely set. v4 and v5 stand out for me mainly because the robin has room to breathe within the frame.
