Hello Mustaffa,
This will definitely make Miss Piggy happy. The details and sharpness is just awesome. Just look at the eyes - I'll have to look at it again and again.

Hi Mustafa,

A nice and well detailed portrait of this common gull,well exposed against a clean BG,maybe he can clean his beak first before he poses next time for you,


A perfect portrait beautifully captured Mustafa Bey, I can almost see the reflection of you in that huge eye! Plumage detail also very nice, TFS.

Hi Mustafa
Very good portrait. Perfect sharpness, nice simple composition and good homogenous background. I think that you could do a little noise reuction in background for absolutely perfect image ;-)
Best wishes

Hallo Mustafa
You cannot be serious! Are you sure this one is really for me?
A lovely dedication, which I did not expect at all. In the same breath I would like to thank you for choosing me to be one of your favourites. A great honour indeed.

I don’t like the photograph. I adore it. A portrait well presented, well focused and much appreciated. I just love the greyish colour of the eye, as well as the fine black plumage that forms circles around the eye. This bird looks very serious and it is as if it is posing for the camera. Just a pity it did not have time to finish his lunch and wipe his mouth. No, I am just joking. This really was very special to me.

Kind regards

Offf ! Bu ne göz, bakış böyle ... Çok güzel bir kuşmuş Mustafa , bu kadar yaklaşabilmen dikkat çekici , tebrikler .

Hello Mustafa,

Miss Piggy was suitably impressed with dedication! It is an excellent shot to use for this reason! The image is sharp, the colours are crisp and the details, including the dirty beak, are excellent! Well done!

kind regards,
Bev :-)
