Hi Mario,
Well composed. European Robins are rather small compared to this one.
Well done

Hi Mario,

A great capture of the big robin,nice colors and details,great POV with a nice BG,well captured and TFS


Very attractive capture, Mario.
The maze of leafless branches around the bird adds to the beauty of the composition instead of distracting attention from the subject.
Superb technical expertise is manifest in this lovely shot.

Hi Mario,

Superb shot of the American Robin, nicely composed shot with a great POV and pose, the details are nice and sharp with very nice colours and lighting, I like the way he is looking at his European cousin in the Gallery.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hi Mario,

I think you can tell us a little bit more about this wonderful bird.

I like the composition here a lot, Mario.
All those branches and twigs crisscrossing make a great BG.
The robin is very sharp and well saturated.
Great management of DOF.
TFS. : )
