Robin

By WildLight  
Firstly, sorry for my very long absence. My computer broke (got a horrible virus) and I nearly lost all my stuff which was scary but luckily with some help I managed to fix it Smile

Here's a shot I took several weeks ago at my local nature reserve. It was getting nearer the end of the day and the light was really nice. This Robin was singing in a bush and this was the only clear shot I managed to get without branches in front his face Smile

I hope you like it!

Fine portrait Joe, glad you sorted your troubles. One very big drawback of the digital age. Ron.

A very fine and initimate image - and a more unusual take of a frequently taken subject. Well done. In terms of versions I feel that both work, but for me V1 has the edge. The selective lift in the tones appears to be like a ray of sunlight adding a little more illumination - it nicely done as it would be so easy to over cook it.
