Hi Akif

It surely is a "wow" shot of this fabulous cormorant.

I like the simplistic composition showing only the bird, the post, and the water. The sharp details (achieved through the appropriate DOF) and the excellent contrasts (the result of spot-on exposure) are well defined showing the lovely features of the plumage. The colours are great and the OOF surface of the water forms a perfect BG to compliment the subject.

Great work and TFS.

Well, thats interesting Akif,
I never knew that was the latin meaning of cormorant.
A lovely clear shot with great light and detail all over.
Cheers, Steve

Hello Akif,
there aren't that many brilliant images on the internet of the cormorant, but this one fits perfectly well into this categorie. Yours shows perfectly the feather patterns on the back and other details like the green eye. Also the white spot by the leg is visible. This could be one for a photo identification guide.

Hi Akif,
Well composed image...
Good colours in the plumage.
Effective blurred sea...
Good perching...
Well done
