2 red points in a b/n sea...a perfect timing to take...i haven't other words,the pic talk alone,my compliments,Luciano

Hi Volkan,
This is a brilliant shot, the POV is amazing and so is the sharpness.
The DOF is just right, and the whole thing looks great! :D

Thanks for sharing,
Ruby :)

Hello Vokan,

What a wonderful action shot!
We tried to photograph these birds last month without the sort of sharp detail that you have achieved! Well done!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

HI vilkan,

A lovely action being frozen so well , Love the details and DOF, very well done on this pic.



An excellent predator-prey photo Volkan Bey, two red areas succesfully obliterate the general black & white effect of the composition. Freezing of the wings on the upstroke gives the photo great beauty.

Fantástica captura.
Magníficos detalles y excelente nitidez y contrastes.
Saludos, JL.

Hello Volkan,
Very good composition. Great in flight...
Well done

Hi Volkan, this is a superb shot in every way. It is both graceful and beautiful. Technically it is excellent with perfect focus, just the right amount of sharpness and great exposure. Great moment to catch with the fish in beak.
Excellent composition.

pose is excellent, good shot but IMO too much saturation of red colours

Volkan , eline sağlık , nefis olmuş .

Volkan yine nefis olmuş, eline sağlık. Selamlar. Mustafa
