Merhaba Selen Hanım,
Buna herhangi bir kuş fotoğrafı demek büyük haksızlık olur. Bu, kaynağını doğal ortamdan alan, aktörleri de kuş, çiçek gibi tamamen amatör oyunculardan oluşan bir sanat eseri. Çok spektakuler bir çalışma olmuş. Emeğinize sağlık.

Hello Selen,
A superb action shot of a Chestnut-breasted Coronet busy feeding from the heliconia flower taken from a fine POV with great sharpness, DOF and use of flash to provide a fine diffuse BG.
TFS this beauty,
Have a good weekend,

Hello Selen,
Great capture of this little Hummer digging into a pretty flower. I love its unusual pose here and light and colours are beautiful. Great sharpness too and well composed.
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Ciao Selen,
splendido momento di cattura di questo colibrì, meravigliosa composizione con uno stupendo BG, super la definizione, fantastici i colori e la luce. Mi piace moltissimo e la scelgo fra le mie favorite.
TFS.

Hello Selen,

Hello Selen,
I long ago didn't look in your photos on TN. Your exotics birds like me very much. Maybe because I didn't them in nature. This is very colourful and shiny. Good composition.

Hello Selen,
Another photo in wonderful clear colours. Great moment and timing. Good sharpness. Excellent composition, POV and BG.

Witaj,
chciałoby się powiedzieć "Smacznego" - z takim zaangażowaniem ptaszek wyszukuje sobie pokarm.
Zdjęcie jest pełne barw a jednak uporządkowane i spójne, to zasługa jednolitego zielonego tła.
Bardzo dobra ostrość i wyraźne detale to dodatkowy plus dla zdjęcia.
Gratuluję i pozdrawiam
Alina

Ah yes and the capture of that one spot of the eye which draws me into the image of quasi pastel sans the red.....and a capture in a moment of time I can well see why some would favorite this. This is your forte'! Very nice to see..

Hello Selen,
Nice captured this hummingbird. Sharp and clearly seen image.
POV and composition are great. Well done
Siggi

Selen dostum,
Renk ahengine, kompozisyona, pozlandırmaya ve ince detaya gösterdiğin özeni kıskanıyor, doğada örneklerini sıkça yakaladığın espiri anlayışına da gıpta ediyorum...
Sevgilerimle,
Mehmet
P.s.: ama titzlikle verdiğin sistematiklerde koskoca VERTEBRATA subfilumunu da neden es geçtiğini de anlayamıyorum...

A beautiful composition Selen and and technically very good, great subject, great image!

Hi Selene,
Beautiful capture of this hummer, the contrast of the subject and the heliconia are a perfect match especially sitting on that nice soft green back drop. I'll be heading down there on the 4th next month.
Cheers!

You really got it! The portrait of the bird is very pretty..
nice colors, perfect sharpness and a beautiful image.... it's hard to find these little birds eaten standing in the flower...this must be very strong to support him...
