Hello Gokhan,
Fantastic photo of this Yellow-vented Bulbul. The sharp details are very good, evenso the beautiful colours. The colours in the BG are superb. Nice POV, pose and composition.

amazing capture, TFS Ori

Merhaba Gokhan,
thanks to you I finally get to see one of the Bülbüls. And what a good and lively portrait you made of the bird sitting on a tamarisk, its simply perfect. Thanks for this, Gokhan. I wish to see one myself some day in Turkey.
Best regards

sade fon, göz teması, netlik, kadraj ve açı, hepsi çok güzel. elinize sağlık, Gökhan Bey. selamlar.

Hallo Gokhan
Splendid image. It is indeed a feast to the eye and it did not go unnoticed. The way you captured this lovely bird from so close-by is just great. It gives the feeling that one just want to reach out and stroke the plumage, especially the beautiful crest. Marvellous display of the detail of the eye, and the hairyness around the beak. Lovely to see the tailpiece from the inside.
Best regards
