    Squirrels and a Robin

    I have not long been shooting in raw. I may have gone a bit over the top with some of the controls, but the outcome is, I like them, or I wouldn't show them lol.

    I would appreciate you views on them. If you want to read the exif I have linked it under each photo.

    Thank you all for the kind comments

    Steve. The eye on all of them was the same. I never highlighted the eye and done any pp on them. I did focus on the eye on most of them

    Great shots David. The white snowy background really brings out the colours and makes a big difference.

    I love the robin shots! Awesome detail especially given your focal length was only 250mm! You musta got pretty close!

    My only tiny criticism is the noise on the tail. I see you were shooting at quite a high ISO (1600) and the tail looks quite noisy. I think you could have finished all of your PP, except for the sharpening, and done the sharpening on a layer and masked off the tail. It's only a minor point, but one that I think would make these great shots even better!

    Good stuff! Thanks for sharing

    Thank you Wayn, Chris and Tommy.

    I can see it now Tommy. I didn't see that before on the tails. I will fix tonight. Cheers.
