Thanks Robins (Three Photographs)

I often see Robins on the ground, usually hoping off as I approach down a path. I see them in trees much less often. This collection shows the challenge. On the ground they can be hard to distinguish from the background, in a tree they can be back-lit or deep in the shadows. All of which was true here; white balance, masking and opening the shadows helps in that order for these kinds of circumstances.  They are the rules/measures to take and then you need to balance colour and exposure to make it all work. It is precisely these kind of circumstances that make it important to spend some time on learning processing as an adjunct to photographing birds.
