Hi Ahmet.
Excellent in-flight picture. Pose of the bird and composition of the shot are superb. Despite the long for flight shooting exposure time you managed to get rather sharp image with many nice details. Colour palette is very impressive and pleasant. BG strengths the feeling of flight perfectly too. My best wishes and TFS.

Hola Ahmet,
Yüklemelerin sıklaştı dostum, bir diğer ortak dostumuzla yarışıyor musun, nedir? Ama Kızılşahin de sen oralardayken araba pencerelerinden uzak durması gerektiğini bilememiş, güzel yakalanmış, bilhassa bakışı çok etkileyici bence, kutluyorum...

Hi Ahmet

A splendid in-flight capture of this long-legged buzzard and a very nice dedication to one of TN's best in-flight shooters! I'm sure Akif will like this shot.
The close-up here is impeccable and it also retains an excellent sense of speed.
Very good details and focus on the buzzard, lovely natural colors and great composition!

Bravo and TFS

I really like that picture, Ahmet, with the blurred background and we can see the movement, very slightly, of the wings of the bird. I really like that and the monochrome tones are superb. Thank you!

Merhaba Ahmet Bey,
Yakin ve guzel bir kizil sahin fotografi. Elinize saglik
Selamlar

Hi Ahmet,
A fine capture of this beautiful long legged buzzard. A very good flying action shot with excellent timing, details and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Ahmet,

Great picture of this buzzard. Very good composition. I like very much the two levels of blur (background and wings) which give very well the impression of speed. Beautiful light and colours.
Cheers,
Mariki

Hello Ahmet,
