Excllent work, Alptekin, great colors, BG, POV, Details, the framing is a little tight but grat work, TFS Kyle

Hello Alptekin,
Wonderful capture in all aspects, but one.
I know how difficult it is to get these small birds in the frame..
This capture would be well worth expanding the frame and fairly easily done, with an uncomplicated blue sky BG..
Very well done.

Great composition Alptekin.
Incredible colors and superb details.

Hi Alptekin,
excellent in flight capture with amazinly good details and bright but very naturalistic colours.
To my taste too closely cropped - the bird seeming to be fenced in by the narow black border. I would prefer more space in front of the bird.
Phantastic shot! Thank you, and best regards,

What a powerful image, Alptekin!
To catch a bird in flight with such amazing details is a great feat on your part.
Focus, POV and colours are exceptional.

Excellent sharp in-flight image.amazinly good details.
Well done Alptekin

Hi Alptekin,
Very nice capture. Exposure and colour are fantastic. I think I agree with other comments about cropping and would prefer to see a little more space in front of the bird.
