Hello Volkan,
superb shot, Excellent focus and colors, you shot it at good time, very very well done
thank you.Best regards Siggi

this is a wonderful shot of this great specie.
Good composition, colors and bokeh

You managed to catch the duck very well when shaken.Duck colors are great.

Selamlar volkan bey,
su damlacıkları çokşirin olmuş.

great sharp capture, TFS Ori

Hi Volkan,
This is a real beauty. I love the frozen action you've captured here and your extreem low POV. The frozen water droplets really tell the story on the movement. The details in the feathers are amazing and I love this little touch of warm light on the head.

It would've been really nice if you had given us a note explaining how you managed to make this photo and to tell something about this duck.


Fantastic scene of action, Volkan! Brilliant dept of field, colors, sharpness ....everything! In a Class of its own!!!

Hello Volkan
A top quality image with great scene. Excellent work!

Elmabaş patkanın çok güzel bir anını yakalamışsınız Veolkan bey. Alçak bakış açısı etkileyici durmuş.
Niek'in yazdığı gibi, çekim bilgileri -exif- ve tür hakkında kısa not olursa bence de çok daha iyi olacak. Belki sizden ve çekim tekniğinizden birkaç tiyo almak bizim için de mümkün olabilir.

I REALLY like this! With a plethora of amazing duck photos out there, it really is refreshing to see one in a unique context such as this, rather than the usual "take-off" or "resting on water" photos.

You nailed the DOF, and i really think that this photo stands apart from other duck photos i'v seen on here.

amazing shot
what was your distance from the pochard??

olağanüstü bir güzellik, harikulade bir çekim. tebrikler Volkan. su zerrecikleri güzelliğine güzellik katmış.eline sağlık, selam ile iyi geceler.
