    Very nice captures... I am noticing just a slight off-color tone to them though... can you tell me what settings you were using?

    You did well in wanting to capture the early light. Today this light was around an hour earlier :D ...

    And of all the birds I ever managed to photograph on one of my rollerblade tours, it was a robin that posed for me (just a little, and in a much more hidden position than yours here). They don't seem to fear humans as muc has (all!) other birds seem to do (or do in my case :irked: ;) :biggrin: )

    Well done, I really like the two robin-pics!!!

    Orgnoi: what do you mean by off - color? flat? WB was set on auto because I moved often from shadows to lights and the squirel shot was slightly improved in PS (shadows)

    Corinna: thank you for naming the bird for me.. I had no idea that it was robin... now I have even less idea on how it may be called in Polish :D

    I love the colour of these shots.
    You are lucky to get a shot of a Red Squirrel. In England they are very rare, I was lucky to see 2 a couple of weeks ago when I was on holiday but by the time the camera was focused they had disappeared into the treetops.

    The colors of the branch seem... too "orangey" (ok I know thats not a word...LOL)... what I tend to do in these situations is to use the cloudy WB for most scenery and wildlife since it adds some color but not overly... and you can use it both in the shade and in the sun... but its all personal pref really...

    Great shots. The DOF in all of these are great. I like #1 the most.
