I would have placed this in the top ten for sure -- lovely clarity and DOF. I suppose the tilt hurt you with some voters.

Maybe I was wrong about the tilt after all -- it beat out my bird by one spot. WTG!

Pretty bird. Is it just flat on the ground? Trying to figure out how it is clinging to ice at an angle lol.

Awesome close up with nice colors and details. But FWIW I am not real fond of the tilt. (no vote, just making a few comments)

I guess you had to crop it like that to remove something from the background but IMO it looks a little funny with the robin leaning backwards. That said good looking portrait, love being able to see the individual feathers on his chest. 8

Beautiful bird. Something bothers me about the way he is tilted back -- as if the photo needs straightening. He looks off balance. Still you have an excellent capture with beautiful color and detail.

Beautiful detail; looks great on ice ;-)

Excellent sharpness. Great colors. I think I might have tilted the crop a bit to make it so that it does not appear as if he is leaning back.

Beautiful bird with great detail but the framing of the shot looking like it is falling over backwards looks really awkward to me.

Sweet. I might have tilted it so that the tilt isn't so "unbalanced." :)

Nice shot, DOF is killer and the shot looks nice. Why is this tilted? I think that hurts it a bit.

I wish he did not look like he was about to fall over backwards.
