This robin was sitting very close to me and I hadn't even noticed him. Somebody pointed him out to me and I turned slowly, flicked the flash on and took a couple of shots. This is the one my wife preferred!

Slight crop, levels, contrast, a bit of sharpening but not much else.

I really like the focus on the bird and the blurred backround. I like how the main part of the bird is sharpened, but the back feathers and the feet are blurred, but you can still see them. I like how the bird is looking off to the side and you can see the detail of the feathers and the feet. good job! I give you a 9.

nice. needs more DOF. I suspect the light inhibited the aperture. Post processing to bring it up kinda ruins it for me. Birds are hard to get right

Pretty little bird, with lovely detail on the blue feathers facing us. Would have liked that little white bit of something on the lower left cloned out as it keeps grabbing my eye.

Beautiful color with nice quality of light and great detail (feathers). My only real criticism is that the background looks overly processed for some reason. Still, nicely captured.

The band makes methink it is domestic, but could be wild. Nice robin anyway.
