Stunning! Great timeing to catch such a dramatic pose. Wing position is perfect. Great sharpness for such movement. The photo is crisp and clean with beautiful blue sky and the exposure is outstanding. A most impressive tern photo and a favorite.

Wow, this is an amazing image. What a spectacular action shot. The detail is fabulous. I'm impressed.

Awesome moment to take photos!
My best regards,

This is an amazing capture, Fatih! I'm jealous. That is a heavy camera and lens to get such shot. Nice work. I wonder if a bit of levels adjusting would brighten the sky and make the range of values a bit more distinct.

Evelynn : )

A fine action shot Fatih,

super colours and great details.

Spectacular in-flight action. Very sharp and claer details and nice colours. Spot-on focus and natural lighting highlights the wings perfectly. Excellent POV to portray this stunning display. Very nicely portrayed and presented. Kudos.
