Hi Akif
This is a magnificent shot. The detail and sharpness in the feathers is good and it is well framed and the muted background complements the bird. I tried to get a Sea Osprey in flight on the weekend so I appreciate how well this shot is focussed.

Hello Akif,
Another excellent shot of a bird of prey, the Marsh Harrier. Wonderful details in the feathers. Fantastic contrasting colours against the OOF BG. Great composition and POV.

Your pictures are always amazing, this is beautiful. I'm amazed at the quality of the details and colours on both wings, at the sharpness also. Thank you!


Hi Akif,

Just stunning mate, the lighting, detail, composition, all perfect. Beautiful work,

Cheers Rick :)

Hi Akif.
Nice work on the in flight. Stopping the wings and keeping it focused is well done.
I also like this background with the colour blur.This is one of the birds I try for the most. TFS

Hello Akif,
Excellent inflight shot of the Marsh Harrier. Good focus, sharpness and details.The blurred background lets the bird stand out in the frame.
Thanks for the share,
