Merhaba Akif,
Datca'nin yakisiklisini guzel fotograflamissin. Selamlar

Akif ters ışığa rağmen çok iyi pozlamışsın. Eline sağlık. Mustafa

Akif Usta (hakikaten ustalık burda bir kez daha görülüyor), mükemmel. yahu sana nasıl yetişeceğiz:) şakası bir tarafa insan gıpta ile bakıyor. harika bir çalışma olmuş. mükemmel netlik, açı ve renkler.
bazısı 500mm, 600mm hatta 800 peşinde geziyor ama görüyorum ki 300 bile ustalık ve şansla birleşince harika sonuç veriyor.
eline sağlık. selamlar.

Beautiful in flight shot...

Hi Akif!

I'm glad to discover your gallery. You have read my critique about the picture that shows birds of prey (I know it now!) in the blue sky. Your picture here shows exactly what I mean. The background gives a total different dimension and perspective to the picture and the details are accentuated. You show us here a wonderful picture!

Kind regards

Markus
