[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
African fish eagle. Shot from a fisherman boat in Lake Nakuru. I set up my tripod in the middle of this small boat, bent over my camera and tried to capture the right moment with Velvia 50. Believe me, it was hell of a challenge, but it was worth to live that moment !

Good capture Alptekin! A great starting photo for joining TN! From the zillions of Flamingos you picked the best shot! Lucky you your F5 is still dry ;-) I remember I had a very dangerous "conflict" with a Rhino while crawling towards the Flamingos, but our guide was smart enough to drive the van between us.
Welcome aboard!

Welcome on TN Alptekin.

Very nice first post. Great colours and very good sharpness for a capture like this one - I belive it is taken from pretty far distance and cropped. But still there are plenty of details left and the white is very well handled. I really like the cropping.

This is a beautiful capture and composition of the eagle. Wish to see more of your great photos here soon.

Nice capture, very well caught.
Well done.

Very nice capture. At 50 Iso ...

Wow, awesome shot Alptekin. Look at those wing feathers. They look like fingers. Good background. Nice vibrant blue which enhances the colour of the Eagle. Well done. Thanks
