Its my 100th shot on TN and its a nice feeling to be with this useful platform where i have gained many things. I know that posting a 100th shot is not the biggest achievement as we can see senior TN fellows with 1000s of images and associated useful notes.I started almost from the scratch when i joined TN and now i feel that i know something or at least i can talk a little bit about photography. It is only because of TN members who are always there to help one not only in identifying the species but also pin-pointing the mistakes, thus helping the amateurs.
Today i am posting a shot of Hoopoe which was taken a few days back. Its a full day-light shot which resulted in some over-exposed white feathers on this hoopoe. Hope you will like my post,
Best Regards,

A wonderful portrait of this quite shy bird. Good light and a plaisant colourbalance.

Hello Akbar,

Hope life is good in Islamabad.Yes, I have been busy, you know how difficult it is to run a public sector college in Pakistan.Congratulations on your 100th post and let me tell you, it is an achievement and you must feel proud of it as we all do....smile....for you are very knowledgeable person and have a sound sense of judgement besides being a fine photographer.
Hoopoe on a tree or on a wire, in this series you are the fifth TN member in the recent past and it is one hell of a well-taken shot of this bird which loves to stay on the ground.Excellent! TFS, take care,

warm regards/Abid

Hi Akbar,
Excellent photo this one of my favorite bird. Good details and amazing colors with nice composition.
Regards Jiri.

Congratulations on your 100th post, Akbar!
You are being too self deprecatory; there is no OE on the white parts. This is one of the best Hoopoe pictures on TN till date with perfect view of its plumage and with the head turned to show us its eye with catch-light glinting in it.
I like your note; it sums up the story of many of us amateurs.
Well done and all the best for your next 100!

Bonjour Akbar,
Félicitations pour la performance !!!
Très belle publication valorisant bien le sujet dans une belle attitude et sous une bonne profondeur de champ permettant d'apprécier la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
