Hello everybody from Istanbul:) I recently joined Alamy, and started putting some of my photos. And of course no download of them yet:)

If you have time to look at my photos and write your suggestions i will be happy. Thank you :)

You have a very impressive portfolio. I think you will do well. I am going to criticize the green parrots. I assume they are not native birds so the story would be to find out what they are including the Latin name. Then the caption should include the fact that they are probably birds brought in as pets. Are there many of them? Are they a pest? I also would not put "closeup" in the keywords. You don't have a close-up and if someone is just looking for that kind of bird yours would not likely be good enough. They are only likely to be used for a story about animals brought in as pets.

Thank you for nice words and critics:) I will change keywords and caption thanks to your critics.

Btw, they first appeared in Istanbul 30-40 years ago and their origin is unknown. They say they normally don't migrate so it means some group escaped from some pet shop or some other place. And by time their number increased to hundreds and even thousand. It is very easy to spot them because they shout all the time :)

That is very interesting and I would include that in your caption and also perhaps in a longer version in "additional information." The article Wim linked to should give you some keywording ideas. I wouldn't have thought of "feral birds." This is a really wonderful film about parrots in San Francisco  ...  https://www.pbs.org/video/independent-lens-the-wild-parrots-of-telegraph-hill-trailer/
