Hi Fikret
This youngster is worth 10+ purely on the cute factor. However, your photo enhanced that exponentially.
Great composition & POV. The colours are well saturated and it really brings out those lovely brown variations in the sparrow. DOF is very good with excellent details on the birdie. The OOF BG is spot-on and the exposure levels are very well managed.
Good work and TFS.

Hi Fikret,
Congratulations...Beautiful bird! Clear details, sharpness, POV and framing are perfect.Well done.

Excellente prise Fikret,l'éclairage est vraiment parfait et les détails sont superbes. Félicitation pour la pose de l'oiseau et les belles couleurs. Par contre à mon avis peut-être un peu trop de saturation.

Mention spécial pour la netteté.
