hello
je trpouve cet oiseau tres beau, belles couleurs nettes et bon BG
certaines personnes ne vont pas aimer le grillage, car cela est moins joli qu'un arbre mais pour ma part, je trouve bien et au contraire tu l' as pris dans le milieu naturel ou l' oiseau se trouvé
bravo et merci

hi Akif,
très belle image, le support est peu naturel :) mais cela donne un beau graphisme à l'image. Le BG est parfait pour mettre en valeur l'oiseau parfaitement exposé.

A pesar de la aparición del alambrado Akif, la belleza del ave y lo bien retratado que aparece aquí amerita su publicación.
Me gusta mucho el foco y la definición captadas con gran control de la cámara, incluyendo el balance de blancos y gracias al escaso DOF has logrado un maravilloso fondo difuso que realza el primer plano de la escena.
Excelente... gracias por compartirla.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

In spite of the appearance of wire Akif, the beauty of the bird and him well depicted that it appears here deserves their publication.
I like a lot the focus and clearness captured with great camera control, including the white balance and due to scarce DOF you have achieved a wonderful diffuse background that enhances the forefront of the scene.
Excellent... thank you for sharing.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Hello Akif,
Very nice capture of this Hoopoe in beautiful light. Sharp details and lovely colours and I like its pose.
Just a pity about the ugly fence, but if I had the chance I would have shot this too. They often show up near habitation.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Akif,

bravo for a very sharp and well composed photo. The funny little fellow is beautiful.
The unfocused dual color background also adds to the success.
