Hi Fatih,

Well composed and good color tone!
And, it draws out the effect in the whole on the perspective between bird of the front and the ones of the background, I think.
I never see this bird(purple swamphen), yet it's interesting for combination of colors to me.

Thanks for sharing!

Best regards,

Hello Fatih,
The foreground Purple Swamphen is technically well photographed; very beautiful colours and great light.
Well done

Merhaba Fatih bey, bu fotoğrafta da filtre var mı :))
Renkleri,detayları ve netliğiyle harika bir fotoğraf. Ellerine sağlık.

Fatih merhaba,
Bu şimdi bizim en nadir kuşlarımızdan sazhorozu mu? (farklı alttür olsa da) hem de çift halde. mükemmel bir yakın çekim. renginden açısına, netlikten, göz temasına tam puan, başköşelik. bence bir de trakuşa gönder ki koleksiyonda bulunsun. eline sağlık, selamlar.
