I very much like the quite unusual head shot of the flying albatross, good and sharp and pleasing subtle colour. Slightly envious Dougson of the opportunity to shoot albatross! Any more tucked away you could share?
Hi Jeff and thanks yes I do have more which I'll post up tomorrow

Jeff replied suggesting positive exposure adjustment for birds in flight or in shade or against a bright sky. My previous shots e.g. of red kites were all taken with positive exposure compensation.
So, here are three images taken this afternoon with exposure compensation (as well as editing as you do with RAW pictures). 1: greenfinch in shady hedge 2: goldcrest in shade in a tree but with bright sky background 3: black headed gull in bright with bright sky.
See what you think...

Here's my version of your robin image. I lightened it, took out some distractions in the background and added a border for a Christmas Card effect. It would be interesting to see what others with more skills could do with it.

Aren't they fantastic, I'm not sure what else you could do with the image, the only thing I can see is you could try and remove that dark rock it might be less distracting.
