Hello Marios,
a nice picture, well exposed with good white balance.
Also a good sharpness and nice colours. But I find it a bit tight cropped, I'm not sure about the square format is right here. A bit more space in front and less behind, maybe you could post a bit larger picture, you are allowed to post 800px.
Over all a fine picture.
Well done.

Hi Marios,
a pretty nice picture of this Ibis.
Pity its a bit over sharpen, we can see the halos around the dark plumage of the bird.
Also a be tight crop, more space in front and less behind make i better balanced.
Akrotiri must be a very nice place for birds.
Otherwise a nice picture.
Well done.

It's a bit soft, maybe too long shutter speed and/or to small aperture.

This is up to you normal high standard, we can all learn from such a great image.

Hello Srikumar,
this is avery nice picture of the goose standing in the water, pitty we can't see the entire reflection.
I think the picture is well composed with a nice low POV and it also nice to see you left a lot of space down, even if we can't see the feet is good to leave space for them.
Nice colours and decant sharpness.
Well done.
