Hi Christodoulos.
I am very pleased with watching of the top quality image. Its clarity and clearness of the colours are ultimate as well as the sharpness of the main subject (fine bird with narrow strip of the ground). Natural surroundings are blurred nicely. Exposure as usual is spot on. TFS and kind wishes.
