|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a breeding pair of Robins that I am privileged to have nesting in the shed in my back garden. The female usually stays inside - I presume incubating her eggs as the male is not active enough yet to be seeking food to feed them. He feeds his mate though, and this is what is happening here.|
The conditions were in no way ideal for a good, sharp image as I had to shoot through glass on a dreary rainy afternoon, as you can just see from the rain droplet on the female's beak. This also explains the milky look to the colours. I tried to improve it, but couldn't.
Unperturbed, I will continue trying until I get the clearest, sharpest image I possibly can. Hopefully, tomorrow the weather will improve and I will be able to use a lower ISO and a faster speed. Maybe I won't get a better one, but I guess that's the chance you have to take in photography!
Anyway, ISO was 800 and I used Aperture Priority and multi-shot.
Ran through Neat Image to get rid of the noise caused by the high ISO.

Hi Vicky. Well done for not giving in on such a dull wet day. You have done well under the conditions. The pose of the two robins is very good with spot on timing. Ok we know about the dull colours. I may have cropped a bit more from the top and right hand side, all that said still a good picture and well done TFS.
Very loving pair of Robins well captured on the feeding!
the image is sharp with good colour and details
the colour on the plummage is awesome and beautiful
many thanks for the sharing
Oportuna y atractiva captura Vicki, con realismo en el color, buen encuadre y atractivo en el conjunto.
Saludos: J. Ignasi.
