Hi Ahmet,

This might be the very first post on TN for 2009. You are way ahead of me - it is 3:30 on the 31st here. A lovely Coal Tit for the New Year. I love the pose looking down at the branch. Beautiful colors and details of the face, wings and plumage. I agree - let's hope 2009 will be a better year!

Merhaba Sayın Hocam,
Türün diğer çektiğiniz fotoğrafları kadar hoş bir kare daha sizden izlemek çok güzel.

Elerinize sağlık
Saygılar...

Attractive composition, the sharpness is perfect, I like the background too.

Merhaba Ahmet Bey,2009'un ilk karesi ve müthiş bir fotoğraf.Ben yorum yazmakta çok geç kalmışım :(
Her zamanki gibi ustalığınızın kanıtı.Yanakları ne güzel,bembeyaz.Ellerinize sağlık,çok teşekkürler,sizin içinde umarım mutlu ve sağlıklı bir yıl olur,selamlar:)

Hola Ahmed'im,
Yeni Yıl dileklerine aynen katılıyorum arkadaşım, ama Baştankara'mız durumdan pek ümitli değil gibi, tabiri caizse "arpacık kumrusu" gibi düşünüyor sanki, umarım yanılıyorumdur...
Mehmet

Hello Ahmet

How have you been?
This is a fantastic capture of this small tit.
It is very similar to the black capped chickadee.
Excellent light and rich natural colours.
The POV is wonderful with very good DOF.
The OOF BG has a lovely bokeh.
TFS

Wolf

hello Ahmet

Wow! This must be my 1st view of a product of 300-800mm lens! That must be expensive glass.

AT FL600mm, the focus sharpness and resolution looks good for this capture of the bird. Extremely fine bokeh effect!

What I like best of this shot must be the light falling on the bird, giving up the exposure for f/stop and speed. At ISO640, the noise level is surprisingly good.

Very good selection of POV for the bird perched on isolated branch without any distraction. Good work.

I can imagine the lens must be heavy.

Greetings from Malaysia.
tfs, bill

Merhaba Ahmet,
this shot is excellent, a wonderful tit, so close, so sharp.
I also wish you a good New Year 2009,
selamlar

Hello Ahmet,
This is a beautiful capture of the little Coal Tit in a nice pose. Excellent sharp details and natural colours against a very beautiful background.
TFS and I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year too! Ulla

Salam Ahmet.
Happy double New Year to you and your family. I did not bring my camera to Haram and no internet access as well. My images posted this year were from my archived. The groups in brownish grey suits in Haram are distinctively Turkeye.
:-)

This is really good sharp capture of the bird exposing the plumage really well. The muted background is perfectly executed, Well done and all the best.

Kind regards,
Jusni

Salut Ahmet
je vois que chez vous aussi on retrouve les mésanges a tetes noire
tres jolie position, prete pour la photo.
de tres belles couleurs , bon détails dans le plumage, pov parfait et BG super
Bravo et merci ...JP
