Hi Akif,
Looks a bit like Selen's image I already critiqued a while ago. Very good work.

Brilliant in-flight shot.
Superb sharpness for this kind of shot
Great composition
Great work

wow! excellent sharpness!
i like that the wings are so wide open. great shot with great color!

Hi Akif, this is a very funny picture. The way the falcon seems to be looking right at his with his head cocked to a side :-). Good work, good capture this.

Warm regards, Kiran

Hello Akif,
This is perfect! Those colors are really stunning and what to say about this POV, wonderful and majestic! I really envy you to be able to see so many raptors in the wild like this... Your nickname suits you very well :-) Congratulations!

c'est un oiseau qui ne se laisse pas beaucoup approcher,et l'avoir un plus en vol c'est super.

Hi Akif,
This is the sort of picture I like.
