Robins usually flock and head further south this time of year. He seemed lonely - didn't mind my presence and was happy to see other birds when they came by.

7 - Nice. Criticism; difficult, perhaps it is the focal point, I don't know, but 'if only' the bird just 'popped' more, especially against the 'shallow' background, make this even better in my opinion. Perhaps tweaking of the colors/contrast, but likely difficult, not sure. Nice scene and composition, but not sure if a different cropping may have helped 'pop' the bird more, who knows. Up to 7 from 6.

With a better composition an 8 so only 5. Do not the center the bird that much.

Love the berries. I wonder if you adjusted curves or saturation, if it would enrich the bird and berry color. Hmmmm - just a thought. Really good DOF
