Hi Akif,
Whow what a great shot, super sharp and fully detailed.

Hi Akif,

Well composed despite the cropping.

Selam Abi Her zaman ki Gibi Tebrik ederim...

Hi Akit, The details have come out well. The colours are fine. But I am not able to decide if this is a good crop or composition. The left wing seen more while the right s almost absent is disconcerting.

The back light on the tail feathers has come out really well. A good symmetry would have made this a GREAT picture.

TFS, warm regards, Kiran

Hello Akif,
Great close in-flight capture of an adult Egyptian Vulture. Fine detail, lighting, sharpness and comp. Rubbish dumps are good places for raptors: we get a lot of Red Kites and occasional Sea Eagles round ours.
TFS and enjoy your weekend,

Enfes....Eline sağlık..Selamlar..
