Hello Mehmet,
Very nice presentation with excellent sharpness and vivid colour.My regards_Joy

Hi Mehmet. I find their eyes haunting. It sure is a good looking bird though. It's nicely center framed. Colours and detail are great. The DOF caused the right foot to blur a bit though. Still a great shot of a very interesting bird. TFS Trevor

Hello Mehmet
This a very nice closed up.Good point of view and razor sharp image with great plumage details.Colours are also very nice ,the only point that if find a little sad for such a nice photo is that you had cut the toes on the left foot.

Hi Mehmet,

Sharp shot of a rare and difficult to spot species. Congrats!
A few nits if I may:
- slight overuse of color saturation tool
- truncated fingers below
- too centered presentation and especially too much irrelevant area on the right (try and google for "photography rule of thirds" for tips on composition)
But don't take me wrong: brilliant shot anyway.

best regards
