Hi Akif, what a nice flight image of the raven.
As you said, the blue metallic colours come out really well against the lighter background.
Regards, Jacob

Nice shot, Akif!

Hi Akif,
this is an excellant shot.
The subject is bang-on in focus and it is so detailed.
Well done,
Joey

Hello Akif,
This is such a difficult task to expose those birds correctly and you succeed very well! I like this composition a lot and the fact that we can see so many great details, even its eye! Did you know that referring to some recent studies, Ravens are on the top of the bird's intelligence scale, even before raptors and way before Doves which are at the bottom :) Thanks,
Claudine

Hello Akif,
Fine in-flight capture of the Raven, taken from above!
The slight bluish iridescence shows well in this sharp and well composed shot.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hi Akif,

You have really caught the color of this raven! The details are so sharp that we can even see his eye. The wings are marvelous. The bird shows off wonderfully against the light bg.
