I have just started to learn post processing. Very little changes made here. Cropped and resized. Comments please.

Hi there, RDV. You've captured a pretty nice shot of a robin. You don't say where you are from but it looks like the robins are coming back for the new breeding season already.

You do mention that in post-processing you only did cropping and resizing but looking at this picture it appears that you must have applied some sharpening, probably USM. Look at the outline of the bird and you'll see an easily noticed white border, referred to as a sharpening halo. People experienced in digital post-processing become quite attuned to looking for this type of artifact and consider it an indication of too aggressive sharpening. There are many different methods for doing sharpening and some are better at preventing the halos than others.

Sorry my statement was not very clear. Very little changes were sharpening and levels adj. then cropped and resized. Thanks for that info about the halo. This is the same pic only cropped and resized. BTW I live in GA and we have lots of robins. Thanks for any tips on PPthis PIC.

Nice shot of the robin. The branch Right above his head is a little distracting, but
at least you got the guy in a tree, the only time to this point that they have
been close enough for me, they've been on the grass.
