Nice job Emmanuel. I love the grumpy look on the second robin shot. The grackle (strange name to my ears), is quite beautiful. It is a great demonstartion of how tough some shots can be. You have exposed beautifully to show detail on the back and neck, but because of all the black we have lost detail on the underside. I suspect if you tried to dial in a positive EV you would end up overexposing some of the shot making for irritating distractions. We can always wish for more DR, but we have to make do with what we have. Well done.

Rafael, Mark, Thanks for the nice comments. Your comments are well appreciated.

Rafael, some times you try your best for the perfect exposure but its not good enough! In this case I tryed +1/2 EV but I didn't like the results. I have other shots of the grackle taken some time ago whichI think arebetter exposed, the light conditions were much better at the time. I'll post them in the future.

Nice shots. I like the pose on the second robin the best. I can relate to what you and Rafael were discussing about exposure. I have a lot of shots on my bird feeder with a garage in the background that is way too bright because it gets more light then the feeder and it is quite bothersome so I never use the shots.
