Hello Ahmet,
This is nice capture of a young Redstart with good sharpness, pose POV and excellent bokeh BG.
I just wonder is the colours are a bit over-saturated, as the blue that shows on the throat should be more of a grey tone instead and this is definitely not a bluethroat!
Nice composition and dedication to our friend Nick.
Thanks for sharing and best wishes to you and your family,

Dr bu nwfis olmuş, eline sağlık. Mavilikler çok ilginç.

Hi Ahmet.
You have taken a very impressive and colourful picture of this very cute bird. Light, colours, sharpness of the bird and wire images, smoothness of the BG are great. Only BG is too noisy, which could be removed at PS. Best wishes and my compliments.

Hello Ahmet,
Nice shot of this handsome little bird. I like the POV and it's composed well. Your WS has helped alot to improve this one :)

slm hocam
güzel bir tür netlik ve parlaklık nefis olmuş ellerinize sağlık.

Hi Ahmet,
A beautiful bird. And you have captured it very well. There seems to be a little noise in the BG but you have corrected it in the WS. Very good details and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Ahmet,

This is a nice bird and colorful capture of it. I like this POV and composition a lot. I wonder why is the image noisy at IDO 400, did you work shopped it a lot? Thanks,

Salam Ahmet,

This so well perched on this rusty barb-wire. The sharpness and detail are excellent. The eye is so bright like she's looking at you. Well blurred background eliminating any busyness here. Well done and best regards from Malaysia.


Sayın Dr. güzel çekim eline sağlık...
