Robin Rules (Three Photographs)

It’s probably an obvious point that shooting up anything’s nose is almost never a great shot, though it seemed to work for Mussolini for a while. I will make an exception here. The robin was surrounded by trees that I had left out of focus and the ISO was quite high meaning a lot of noise. I reduced the noise severely on the trees fading them out dramatically, this is not a technique that works all the time and the out of focus trees maybe distracting to some. Another issue was the halo of back-lighting more visible in the color version than in the black and white, where I was able to remove it.
