Merhaba Arjun,
Muhteşem bir Kerkenez karesi sunmuşsun. Detaylar, renkler ve keskinlik enfes olmuş. Tebrikler.


My goodness! What a painful perch that might be if one was not careful! all those thorns makes the image so interesting. I like the light on the kestrel and the sharpness and exposure are great.
