[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a shot again from my garden.
It is the moment of mother dove feeding its younger. This happened very close to me, yet I couldn’t manage to adjust focal length at first. So they couldn’t fit in the frame wholly. It was afterwards that I could shoot them wholly and i will share them later.

Photo: No cropped, resized and framed in 800x600 for TN.

Hope you like it.

Merhaba Fikret,

I know this moment must the picture become maked, indeed dit must very quick happening.
The closed eye and the open wing gives a excellent composition, colour and framed are very well.

Best regards,

hi Fikret,
cette image est très jolie et particulièrement douce. Beau moment de tendresse, très bien mis en valeur.


Bonne idée très originale.
Bonne journée.

Fikret merhaba , konsept olarak nefis bir fotoğraf , üst taraf biraz boş kalsada netlik ve resolution mükemmel , eline sağlık , bol şanslar.

The image has almost an abstract quality to it, Fikret. That way, you have given it a very good caption: KISS. It evokes the association of a pair of human lovers in an intimate embrace.

The picture, as usual, is immensely beautiful as a composition and also in terms of technical excellence.

Hello Fikret

What a stunning post! These really look like two lovers! What an impeccable timing and pose capture here by you! My hat's off to you!
The sharpness is also at the highest level, and also the DOF is impressive.
Exposure - spot on...as usual, and the BG here complements the colors of the doves lovely.


PS: the shot in the WS is equally impressive!

Marvellous intimate shot of the parental care of a Collard Dove.
Superb POV. comp., sharpness and excellent contrasting green OOF BG.

Hi Fikret,
Very interesting mix of wings!
I like the POV to catch this scene, it's like a big hug or something like this between the doves.
Vey good the DOF and and the soft background got, it green works great for this composition.
Well done and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hi Fikret,
I find with photo a really masterpiece in its style. I think you can think marketing it for St Valentine as a post card.
Pose, pov, colours and bg can't be better.
