I like the DOF in this one, and the colours (no colour manipulation on this one)

This was from last year when I was (and still am) learning to take better photos. I surprised myself with the lack of noise and the decent focus.

I like your DOF, also. Well done!

Thanks :-)

I was surprised it was such a good shot, this was at the far end of my 70-300 Sigma, the little guy was about 25 feet away

Maybe you probably haven't realized yet Nortelbert but this would do better in the bird forum.
You have a good focused shot of the American Robin showing good details and very nice colours. And an excellent catch-light to the eye.
Just a small suggestion though, when you compose the shot try to give a little more room to the left of this picture so we can see where the bird is looking because then the composition of the shot looks much better for the bird shot. If you cropped the photo then that can be retrievable.


Canon 5D + Canon 20D + Canon EOS 300

Yeah, I figured that out after posting; that's what happens when you post too close to bed time :-)

As for the composition, yes it is cropped. I'll post the a better crop on my web site later today and update when it's available.
