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.

  1. The framing of thorns adds an interesting piece to this shot.
    I’ve often wondered how animals manage to go through these plants without serious injury!
