Eastern Yellow Robin
Good capture, I like the post and the great colour contrast in this bird. You mentioned the low light conditions and noise problem, under these conditions you did extremely well.
Framing is very much personal taste, in this case not it reminds me of chromatic aberration a bit. Probably just me.
Pose is great and you even captured a catchlight in the eye. Well done!

Wow ! What a lovely and interesting Robin that you have very well captured ! I also appreciate the complementary note... Congratulations Chris and thanks for sharing.
Terrible, so dull..... I'm joking!!!
I think you did well and the note is excellent to explain the how. My personal feeling - some people on this site seem to judge a pic by the technical attributes only when I like to see the equipment and how the person adapted. Also, nature is exactly that, it is not a studio and should never become one either! So well done my friend and TFS
A fantastic capture, Chris.
Super sharp details and wonderful colors.
Do you like the S2. I have the S1 and might one day upgrade.
TFS. : )

What a beautiful coloured bird. Nicely composed. Lovely POV looking up. Perect catchlight in the eye. TFS.
Not the sharpest of you, of course. And also a bit of noise. But as Tim pointed out, it's not about the technical point that defines a good picture. Of course, it counts, but everyone has an inner image of the perfect shot (and not two the same). As I stated in my intro, I'm not looking very technical at a photo. It is a cute and colourful bird that I never seen in my life that caught my eyes when I opened the picture, not the noise.

I love this bird, its a Swede, in his blue and yellow plumage.:-) Well composed, nice colours and good details.
You did a good job.

Great composition with beautiful colours and a good POV. TFS.
it's a wonderful bird, the colours are marvelous. The background is a little noisy and I don't like the frame so much - only my opinion. But there is such a nice glance in the eye, a cute bird, thank you very much for sharing it with us, bye

Chris, I do know what it is to try a "typical" DSLR shot with a compact camera - I did it so many times :) .
Anyway, I have the feeling this webpage has to do with sharing too - and that's really great. Even if an image is not perfect, we want to tell the others: "Hey, check how nice this creature is". That's how I think things work...
A lovely bird. Great colors, composition and pov. The catchlight is there.
Keep on bringing them.

Chris, Excellent shot of this robi. The colours of the bird are good and the greenery on the post add a new element, making it different from some.
