Excellent composition and colour as well as lighting are good in this shot of a Magpie. But as this could be sharper I have used the WS.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Ahmet, Not a easy shot with black and white birds. You still have managed to shoot better. Little more Eye catch would have been good. Ganesh
