merhaba Cahit bey,
güzel ve net bir balaban çekimi olmuş. meşhur duruşlarından birinde yakalamışsınız. sanırım saz-kamışları değil de taşlar arasında kamufle oluyordu. kadraj, çekim açınız, ışık ve detaylar çok güzel. elinize sağlık.

Cahit,

Great image of the Britten,
I like the way you showed the yellow eyes, great pose,bg and framing by adding a bit of water.

bird captured in great pose and beautiful light,
nice details and composition,

A sharply focused and perfectly illuminated Bittern Cahit, the detail of the plumage and that very nice, contrasty BG makes an excellent composition. "Ellerine sağlık".

Hello Cahit,
Wonderful photo of this Bittern. Excellent warm colours, light and sharpness. The DOF, POV and composition are very good.

Hello Cahit,
Natural light...I thought it is taken with a low sun through the light's colour but the shadows are indicating the opposite...?
Well done

Hello Cahit,
Excellent capture of a Bittern that is usually difficult to photograph as it does not often show itself.
This is pretty sharp, taken in a fine composition from an excellent POV and in superb lighting that makes it contrast well against the water BG.
Nice to see!
Thanks for sharing this,
Ivan
