Merhaba Okan,
Superb photo with great color and feather detail. It could have used some more depth of field though. Well done.

Muy aguda captura Okan con maravilloso iluminación que brinda toda una paleta de colores y detalles con total definición.
Me encanta el punto de vista captado y el encuadre elegido para la presentación con perfecta difusión del fondo que realza aun más la belleza del ave.
El estético brillo del ojo es un bonus para la escena.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Razor sharp capture Okan with wonderful illumination that offers an entire palette of colors and details with total clearness.
I love the captured point of view and the elected framing for the presentation with perfect diffusion of the bottom that even enhances more the beauty of the bird.
The aesthetic catchlight is a bonus for the scene.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Hi Okan,

That is one sensational shot of the Kingfisher! Everything has been said already but the colors and details are splendid.


A fantastic capture, Okan. Very good POV, DOF, colours and sharpness.
I have just acquired the same lens with my new D200, but I should learn to use it effectively. This picture of yours gives me the confidence that I have at least chosen a good one :-).
Writing a note on your picture is always useful, so why don't you give it a try?

Hello Okan , sharpness, resolution and colors excellent ,I think bird little smaller in the frame maybe better , thanks , good luck.
