Merhaba Cahit Bey,
Kompozisyon ve isik cok guzel. Tuylerde biraz detay kaybi olsa da hos bir fotograf. Elinize saglik
Iyi haftasonlari dilerim

Bellissima immagine, eccellente momento di ripresa, ottima nitidezza e bella la tonalità calda. Complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

This is a very good exposed image. Nice setting for the speed. If you took this in RAW, I might suggest testing out the Temperature, and saturation a bit. I think you could whiten the feathers a bit for a different effect.

Hello Cahit agcal ,
It seems as he was flying for you, Every thing goes in you favour. His posture, Light, Mood and every thing. Very lovely shot with superb detail and exposure, Thanks for sharing such superb shot. With best regards, Nadeeem khawar.

Merhaba Cahit Bey,
A good, movement freezing exposure gave perfect detail of the white plumage while capturing the characteristic sigmoid curve of the neck, the flight of the egret towards the setting sun warmed the colors nicely. Very nice and TFS.

Hello Cahit,
Wonderful photo of this White Egret. Light and colours are very beautiful. Great sharp focus and fantastic dark BG.

Excellent shot of this flying egret, with great sharpness and good colours. Well done!

Excellent catch.
I do not believe that the Workshop was better than the original.

Merhaba Cahit Bey, arada bir tek bunu atlamışım sanırım. Uzun zamandır TN'e uğramıyorsunuz. Özlettirdiniz karelerinizi. Hoş artık ben de TN'den soğumaya başladım. Ama yeniden güzelim karelerinizi görmek isterim.
Sevgi ve sağlıcakla kalaın. Selamlarımla.
