Sevgili akif,merhabalar
300mm+1.4TC+beceri=1200mm'lik bir donanımla çekilmiş gibi
birde 500mm aldınmı kim tutar seni
ellerin dert görmesin harika kompozisyon ama birininde bunu daha yakından çekmeye giderken uçurması lazım oda ayrı meziyet

Hello Akif,
Fantastic shot, superb sharpness, excellent composition, very good depth of field and beautiful vivid colors.

Hi Akif,
great action shot withexcellent sharpness.
The colors are great and the heron stands out nicely against the background.
I like composition and POV very much.

Hello Akif,
Amazing warm colours and light in this photo. Excellent sharpness and details. Fantastic composition, POV an DOF. Very beautiful BG. High quality!

Magnifique !
Le bg est excellent, l'attitude du héron idéale, et les gouttelettes ajoutent encore un plus à la photo.
Bravo !

Merhaba Akif, this is an amazing shot. Good shallow dof subject and foreground is very sharp. The colours are excellent and warm, a very beautiful heron I’ve yet to see. Perhaps 1 day we can take pictures together. I look fwd to that. Tebrikler Selam, Necip I've added to my favourites

Wooow! Wonderful light and sharpness! We can even see some little water drops. Excellent shot! Congratulations Akif,

Guzel fotograf, emegine saglik Akif

A very nice, crisp action shot! I find it very difficult to get a good sharp picture of birds in flight, but I also don't have the best of lenses either, you've done an amazing job with this Purple Heron!


Good work, Akif.
Moody colours, the droplets, extraordinary foreground and background, etc. everything is matching.
Well done

Hi Akif
