    we usually never have robins in my part of the U.S this time of year, but this year we have been having flocks of them roosting in our brush. so i went out one evening and took a few photos. i was pretty surprised how close robins will let you get to them. i didnt zoom in on any of these. c&c please

    I like the first and third ones. The colors in the first really stand out, the slight pink tint in the sky really works well with the red barn. and in the third, I like the way the birds kind of look like the leaves in the trees, the way they're scattered around at first they look like leaves on the ground, until you look closer. Though the third does look a tad flat to me.

    As for the second, it is not really interesting to me, there's nothing that strongly grabs my attention.

    the tree and fence kind of act like a frame, if they could have been more of a foreground, then I think your eyes would want to roam around the picture more.
