Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain … Robin Red Breast at Lost Hollow Farm

Sue Horrocks Miller invited us up to Lost Hollow Farm outside Mathias, West Virginia, last fall where I took this picture . . . 

With new technologies, it’s all too tempting to push all the buttons, all the time — so this time, YOU get to decide. The top picture is the picture “as taken” with the 35X telephoto lens . . .  and the bottom photo is cropped and has lots of buttons pushed. . . . 

In this case, I tend to prefer the second one, because it’s actually more like the color of the robin’s breast “in the wild” at that time of year (the distance between the camera and the vines attenuates the reds because of the autumn haze that day), and because it’s more “fun” for my pretty-much-colorblind eyes.
