Hi Alper!
WONDERFUL little bird on just great BG!
I like your soft composition!
Good job!

IOU points :-)

Nice Composition.

The colours are excellent.

Yes, I like it too, Alper. Great pose, amazingly counterbalanced by the grass twig.
Beautiful colors and light. Barbed wire is a contrasting element working well in your beautiful composition, perhaps symbolic of our world's contradictions... Great shot!

Nice background, excellent work here, with a perfect focus, and realy cool colors !

Simple and strong composition Alper - the of course is great but you just added something more in the straw, well seen. Colours are great, sharpness/dof excellent and the missing background is just perfect.

excellent sharpness and composition.

I, for one, am not at all tired of your shrikes, Alper. This one is especially beautiful and well captured.
Wonderful detail, lighting, POV, and BG.
Thank you for sharing it with us.

A very sharp, clear picture of this bird, that shows its key coloring charcteristics very well. I think I'm beginning to recognise that strand of barbed wire! ;-)

what a sharp shot!!! well done!
I dont think i will ever get bored with your shrikes if they come with this kind of quality!

A beauty indeed. Superb shot with crisp details and perfect exposure. The colors are gorgeous. The rust of the fence matches the russet on the bird. Cool background. Well done, Alper. : )

Alper, this is really beautiful.

Excellent composition and great bg.

I like the contrast. Not only the colors contrast, but the contrast between the tender bird and the "rough" wire.

A great shot.

TRès belle composition, les couleurs sont magnifiques, l'effet de profondeur est super. Merci Alper pour l'image

Your highest rated photo and it's easy to see why. Brilliant colours, lovely blurred background and very strong composition. Very sharp, also, every feather is visible.

If they get tired of your shrikes, they might be nauseated with my chickadees...;0 Hopefully not though.
This shot is beautiful. I love the rusted barbwire and the stalk of grass crossing on the right.
Nice composition!

well done a super colourfull image to be proud of
