Great kingfisher capture. You were lucky to have such bright light to capture so much detail. Well done.

razor sharp kingfisher image. colors are also fascinating. congratulations Alper.

Great shot! You've captured this Kingfisher really well, I particularly like the contrast between it and the greens on the rock. The composition works well for me too. About the only thing I'm not sure about is the sharpening, to me it seems a bit much - but I'm not one to talk ;) Anyway, excellent capture :-D

Hi Alper,

This bird is high on my wishlist! This photo is excellent. Wonderful colors and a great BG. Sharp details and fantastic composition. Exposure is very good too. I don't know what usm settings you used, but you were on the edge of oversharpening. Anyway, well done & TFS!


Okadar çok çektim şu yaramazı ama birtanesi bile göğsümü gere gere yollayacağım kadar iyi değil.İstediğim gibi çekene kadar çekilmişlere bakıp kıskanacağız:((

Eline sağlık..Selamlar..

Hi Alper, fantastic image! I love it. It looks as sharp as the birds beak ;). The BG and composition are superb, the colouring wonderful. TFS :)

An excellent shot Alper,
Superb vivid colours,nice detail and excellent composition.
Very well done.


Merhaba Alper Bey :)
Böyle mükemmel kuş fotografları görünce hep 400 veya 500 mm objektif almaya özeniyorum fakat sonra siz ustaların yanında böyle 4-4'lük fotograflar çekemiyeceğim için haddim olmadığına karar verip vaz geçiyorum. Fotografınıza yine söylenecek bir şey yok, o kadar harikaki. Elinize, gözünüze zeval gelmesin. Tebrikler.

Hello Alper

Great capture. I am always captivated by the colour of the Kingfisher from other parts of the World. This fella is so bright and beautiful. Very good light and detail. Nice work. Thanks

Alper, what a colorful shot.

Excellent and vivid shades, great sharpness and composition. It looks like a painting, and that's nice.

Hi Alper
It's a wonderful capture, you lucky man, I wish I could have seen this guy through my lens...
The composition is excellent. Just one point however : I don't know whether you neated the image, but something disturbs me regarding the sharpness.
Anyway, a great one !

What a beautiful bird! Colors are fantastic. Great details and nice composition. TFS

The blue background, the sharp "ijsvogel" and the plae, she's sitting on, simple but very nice shot !

Hi Alper,

Excellent capture
Perfect sharpness,details,colours,POV,BG.
