Merhaba Akif Bey,
Pozlari ve zamanlama harika. Trapezcileri animsattilar bana :o)

Hi Akif,
Unique action shot captured here!
I know this is really a hard moment to catch, it requires a great timing and quick hands to shot at.
One of them seems to be having a tough time.
You did it pretty well. Excellent picture.
Congratulations for the moment catched and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

  • Great

I like this a lot. I love action shots of wildlife. You have great contrast between the sky and the birds. You also have composed the shot for drama. I take many photos of Ravens and the Crow family, they are facinating in their behaviour. I have never taken a shot like this. In my view it is wonderful to see. Well done, you have a good eye.

Merhaba Akif Bey.
Mükemmel bir o an. Çok hoş bir şekilde kadraja almışsınız. Gerçektençok başarılı bir kare. Elinize sağlık.

Hello Akif,
This is a difficult picture that you captured very well. It is not easy to catch those birds in-flight because of their dark colors. I tried many times but I never succeed. This is a great action shot with very nice details and exposure. I'm amazed by those details you caught. This is very well done! Thanks,
