Hello Cahit,
Great capture of a young male Pochard moulting into adult plumage. I like the composition with the fine reflection in the water and the technical quality of the image is first class.

Hello Cahit

A beautiful capture of this pochard.
The lighting and colours are beautiful.What a super reflection upon the water.
Sharp focus and details,the plumage markings show well.
Nicely composed in the frame.


I like the stillness of water and reflection you captured. Getting the drip on the bill is nice too.
My thought is that a little more of the scene could be shown. A bit more on top for balance.Your gallery looks impressive with the variety of birds.
