Hi Cahit.
Terrific reproduction of the beautiful bird. Details of the bird and nice twig are ultimate. Lights and colours cannot be better too as well as an impressive POV. May be cropping on the bottom is strong a bit but this is not a point. My kind regards and TFS. Perfect job.
Alexei.

Hello Cahit,

There is a very fine composition in your photo. There are very few elements so that viewer can easily focus on the main subject. The diagonaly placed perch makes the image more dinamic. The bird is well shown in this sharp image. Colors are naturaly looking. There is a fine way bird's plumage colors blends into the background.

Thank you for sharing,
Cristian
