hi ivo
perfect light and foucs on head

aleks ;-)

I love how the sunlight is washing over this vulture! It's such a warm photo that is pleasing to look at -- when normally a vulture might not be so pleasing to look at :) Nice placement of him to the left...really gives perspective! Penny

Hi Ivo, this is light, this is a fantastic picture with beautiful colours, extreme sharpness and a very nice pov. The bird looks magnificent in this light. Thank you!

Hi Ivo,

I like your picture. Bird's warm colors against the background looks great. Sharp details of birds hed are impresive. Composition with a lot of space in the direction of birds look is good.

Best regards,

Hi Ivo

Perfect composition of this griffin vulture and his world. the placement of the bird on the far left with the tree on the right is fantastic.
Great sharpness too. TFS

Hello Ivo,
Great photo with lovely warm light. Excellent pose, POV and composition. Very good sharpness and BG.

Hello Ivo
There are still this kind of birds in Bulgaria?? This is wonderful, it is a very good picture of a rare bird! TFS,

Wonderful shot. The composition is also excellent. Some parts of the vulture seem to be a little too bright to me, but I guess that cannot be taken care of with digital camera. Anuways, the bg, soft sunlight, and position of the bird make a great picture.
