Hi Joao,
Excellent capture and well worth the wait in the hide. Lovely habitat captured setting off the bird nicely. Good exposure and DOF. The highlight area in the right of the BG is a little distracting...but probably hard to get rid of in a hide.

hi joao,
lovely post,
well composed with good pov,
well saturated colours,
bit of noise visible in the bg,
tfs & regards

Hello Joao,
your pic merits more attention than has been given so far. Of the many Erithacus pics on TN this one stands out for composition, the interesting posture and the sharpness. Thank you also for the description of how you did it. It's interesting to see that 400ASA still gives this fine grain. Well done!

Hello Joao,
Your patient wait in your hide was worth it to get this shot showing the Robin in a fine pose.
Though the colours are a bit over-saturated, causing too much blue on the Robin, this is otherwise well composed and sharp.
TFS and regards, Ivan

Hi Joao,
A bit of noise in de picture due to the 400 iso but you have captured this robin in a very nice composition. Very nice colours and nice naturel surroundings.

What a pretty little bird, Joao.
The colors are exquisite.
Good details despite the poor lighting conditions.
I like the composition too.
TFS. : )

Hi Joao!

Great shot. Love his expression. Lovely point of view and nice colours.

Understand you didn't have much light and had to use higher iso, i'll do a quick workshop for you.
