[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My short İzmir trip continue with third shot from İzmir. This is a Larus ridibundus Linnaeus, 1766 – Karabaş Martı [TR], Black-Headed Gull [EN] which I posted another flying ones several days ago.
This shows its winter plumage without black head. After one or two months, its head will be black and so it will be ready for breeding season.
I send this shot to Professor Abidin Budak who was my supervisor when I was a Master and PhD students, with my special regards and thanks. He is a famous herpetologist from Department of Biology of Ege University (İzmir).

Hello Ahmet!,

Nice and sharp. The grey BG compliment the bird wing's color.
Good eye catch and contact with natural side lighting.

Merhaba Ahmet,
This is a superb capture of a Black-headed Gull in winter plumage.
The lighting, POV, sharpness and composition are all excellent and the colours contrast well against the neutral BG.
Well done and thanks,
Have a good week, Ivan

Hello Ahmet,
Beautiful photo of this Gull in a nice pose with eye-contact. Very sharp details and great natural colours. Excellent DOF and composition.

Hola Ahmet,
Martının duruşu kuşu olduğundan biraz kısa göstermiş ama netlik, aydınlanma, bakış açısı ve geriplan açılarından harika bir tablo sunmuşsun. Abidin ithafını görünce herhalde çok sevinecek. Eline sağlık.

Hi Ahmet.
I like this species of the gull. There are widespread in my region. You managed to show all its beauty. Nice close-up, excellent exposure and colour reproduction. I like nice smooth BG too. My compliments and TFS.
