Hi Bev, fine little Robin, good composition, your first using RAW!!..stick at it..you will get more control over your images. It will be worth it when you see what you can do with it. Can you PP in RAW before converting to jpeg, I only use jpeg for uploads...nothing else,
TFS and regards h
You are so right about the weather today..I went to Stockers Lake and met Necip, Nick Glen and Mike Warnes and we spent most of the day frozen in snow showers!!..Roll on Winter I say!!
Now for Mr Robin..He has an almost glum look!! which I like a lot..The colours are spot on...As for your first shot in Raw...Raw is a different way of processing a picture and I have to disagree with the advise Howard has given you...In a lot of cases it is worth the trouble...But if you are happy with the Jpeg image then there is little point in using it...It is a long and open subject but I will gladly share my experineces with it if you would would like...Its not easy to use but it is worth the effort.
All the best Bev

I love these Robins - always so cute looking. And what a trip he has to get food!
RAW - I sometimes don't think it is worth it - but then now and then I get a good result - I need lessons on how to work with it.
Maybe more brightness and contrasts (PP RAW) would make him look even better, Bev.

Nice diagonal composition of the image and very cute robin. Its pose, direction of site and expression of eye(s) are sweet. I like very impressive and nicely coloured FG and BG. Shot is framed and composed perfectly too. My compliments and kind regards.

I like the birds pose most of all, and the fact that he/she seems to be looking right at you..
Well positioned in the frame with good detail, color, and DOF.
Getting a good image is hard enough. I learned very quickly that shooting nature shots in JPEG meant a low success rate, as compared to RAW. It's worth it, just give it some time :)
Have a nice weekend,
