Very nice image Ahmet. Composition is axcellent and the BG has very nice softness. Just would like to have seen a little more sharpness on the bird. Best regards, Harry

An interesting bird in a good pose.
Your note is good too.
The bird could be a little sharper,and you could possibly lower the blue levels to restore the natural colour a bit.
