Beautiful capture Akif.
Amazing detail, fine color, and wonderful wing/feather extention.
Well done

Hello Akif
Theres really not to much to say apart from sharing this one..I have a pair of Buzzards in my area and I cant seem to get close enough gor anywhere near a sharp shot let alone one of this immense quality.
Best Regards

Warm regards,

Akif Bey, günden güne kalite mükemmel ötesine doğru gidiyor. hele 40D geldikten sonra hızına, çekim kalitene zor ulaşılacak gibi. Harika bir çekim. tam puan benden. bu arada Raptorman'ın raptorları da geri gelmiş (kısa bir aradan sonra) :) eline sağlık. selamlar.

Wow!! I am speechless!! What a fantastic shot! Amazing clarity, details, light, composition, and everything! Perfect to me!

Hello Akif,

Je ne vois pas ce qu'on peut reprocher à cette photo,tout y est parfait: la netteté, les couleurs,la luminosité et la compo.
Donc, juste merci!

Akif Bey,
An altogether excellent shot, what can be better than this I wouldn't know. From the viewpoint of composition, you might try to rotate the image 20-25 degrees counterclockwise, then it will be perfect.

Yes Akif
just perfect, every single feather sharp and good compo
