Hi Akif.
I love the simplicity of this pic. The shallow depth of field just makes it a peaceful photo. I put it into my favorites. Happy new year.
Regards, Steve.

a superb shot, i dont think this could have been cropped in any other way.
it has been composed realy well with all the flamingos heads in the water and just the one remaining head looking out.
nice work.



I like this image very much, great composition, very good eye,

Interesting composition, Akif.
What a lot of legs and necks all mixed up together.
Sharp details on these flamingoes feeding in the mudflat.
The exposure is excellent, which I find really hard to do with flamingoes for some reason.
Great job.
Happy New Year and TFS. ; )

Hello Akif,
Beautiful light gives great colours and details in the birds!
DOF gives sort of 3D effect and makes the birds really stand out...
Good point of view and well done on composition!

Merhaba Akif Bey,
Kadraj, kompozisyon, yansimalar ve ışık çok guzel. Elinize saglik.

Hi Akif,
This is a beautiful photo, taken I suspect early morning or late evening judging by the angle of the light.
Very well taken.

Somehow your format and parallel, repeating lines have emphasized the specialized nature of these facinating creatures. Biologic diversity in a simple picture.
