That has some beautiful detail - scale really matters with nature photography doesn't it? I'd like to see what it looks like in black and white.

Well, I'd normally be pressing the 'like' button but its disappearance is forcing me to stop being so lazy!

I think it sharpens up the focus, making the background slightly more mute and more in keeping with what I'd expect from the title. However, the more I look at it, the more I appreciate the simplicity of the yellow and green hues in the original.

Nice work, either way :)

My friendly Robin begins to look a bit manky towards the end of summer:

#3- How sad. Looks like a Dandelion gone-to-seed, but the young'uns never left the nest. They've lost their parachutes and are trapped, never to reach their potential. B.& W. Nice detail.

The robin is stunning in its detail, Bloggs, really beautiful. On top of its head I almost see snowflakes, or possibly Zulus' shields.

Its a "design" you'll find everywhere in nature - If I'd cut out the eye and beak I could have changed the colour and it could have been seaweed, ferns, ice patterns on glass.
