Hello Akif,
fine capture of this female red footed falcon. The blue sky is a perfect background.
In my homble opinion I think the noise reduction in the image is a bit over the top. Especially in the un derside of the wings it is visible. But further I can only dream of taking such a picture.
Regards, Jacob

Hi Akif,
This is a very nice in-flight capture of a great raptor. TFS

Hi Akif.
Great image with her looking right at you coming down. The blue sky really makes her stand out. There is a loss of sharp detail in parts of her wings but eye contact detail is great. Wonderful light on her to see all underneath.

HI Akif,

Wonderful capture of this falcon in-flight. She seems to be looking right at you and the details of the face are fantastic. Is she giving you the evil eye? I love the patterns on the spread wing.

Akif merhaba, Yine çok güzel bir fotoğraf eklemişsin. Erzurum çevresinde arazideyim. Çok güzel kuşlar var ama iyi bir makinem yok. Yolun bu tafara düşerse eminim çok güzel türler çekersin. Selamlar. Mustafa

Very nice shot my friend well done. I have never seeen before a red footed falcon

Fantastica ripresa con un soggetto preso in posa plastica e dinamica nello stesso tempo. Ottimi colori, composizione e luce.

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele
