Elinize sağlık Akif Bey harika bir kompozisyonla sunmussunuz

Hello Akif,
Fantastic shot of this cute owl. The composition is really splendid with the old branch and the blurred new green branch on the background. Very dynamic diagonal. And the eyes of the owl very attractive... Great job! Best regards,

Hello Akif,
The 9.9.2009 has inspired you a very beautiful picture. Excellent composition with decentred main subject and interesting depth of field created by the blurred leaf-tree. Beautiful fine light too. I hope that the little Athena noctua had a peaceful message for that day..
Kind regards

Hi Akif,
beautiful shot. lot of clarity and details. The leaves behind enhance the composisition and are blur enough not to distract from the main subject. Excellent.
Nice soft tone.
Love the eye contact

I love this image, one of my favorite owls

Interesting lighting which I really like.

Very well done
