A particularly handsome chap! I like the border too. It adds a sense of definition but because it's the same colour, it is completely unobtrusive. Click. Ali
A very exquisite capture with lovely background colour!
Its a glorious shot Su, you have the dark exposure / high detail treatment totally under control here.
Stunning shot Sue,i love the colours,the detail is superb as is the presentation.
beautiful bird, great detail and composition. the border does go really well

Fantastic shot Su, he looks like a straggly fella! Great detail and composition, congratulations on your award too.
fantastic - well deserved ec
A precious work of art, Su. I can think of no more to say. Many congratulations on a rich-deserved EC.
superb work as usual,very well caught.congrats on the EC
Excellent clarity and well presented.
Fabulous shot... you must be pleased with it. I have mixed reservations on borders but this is probably the best I've seen I think. Very unobtrusive and adds a great deal to the overall composition and feel of the shot. Kept the yellow head feathers exposed very well. I should imagine it was quite easy to blow the yellows out.Certainly EC material.
Suberb as always, well done
fabulous photograph....Well done on the EC, well deserved.
Congrats on EC. Didn't realise you could stack convertors and get this quality. What 300mm are you using?
great shot / presentation
Stunning indeed,excellent composition, pose and focus.
Great DOF and sharpness. Congrats.....
nice bird shot well done
It@s all been said and the border is perfect, I mean that.
The presentation finishes this off just nicely. Congratulations on your well-deserved EC
Pete_g, it's a 300f2.8 nikkor, tamron 2X & nikon 2X. Apart from the handling difficulty it doesn't do well with whites and/or highlights. I am not sure how to explain it and I have posted a sample photo in the 'mods'. Edges of higlights seems to have a 'halo' effect. Thanks for your comment.
Thanks to everyone for your comments as well, very much appreciated.
wow excellent shot
Nice photo but I hve to question your techies.
You say you shot at f/4 but that is impossible with the combination you state
superb image. lovely composition & details
Lovely image, well deserved EC with the glassware involved.
Neil: if the nikon is anything like my Canon it will record the aperture the lens it is set at not the effective aperture of the combination so in this case the effective aperture would be f16 (f4 +4 stops)
Kev, thanks for doing the math. A softie at 2.8, slightly better with f4, beyond that think I need to pray for more light.
Canon digital cameras record the both the 'set' and effective aperture if you look in to the EXIF. My comment was because it was stated that the image was shot at f/4 when clearly it wasn't and for the sake of non-experienced people, it needs to be explained in case they wonder why they can't do the same thing
In any event, regardless of the EXIF info, the person shooting would surely know it wasn't being shot at f/4 - I would hope so anyway
Quote: You say you shot at f/4 but that is impossible with the combination you state
Neil, some things are silently understood by many including yourself. Didn't think I needed to go in-depth with the aperture mathematics, or the the 1.5X focal length multiplication for digital SLR. It will become repetitive, if you follow.
300mm (effectively 450mm)+ 2X + 2X (total 1200mm, effectively 1800mm) @ 1/320 f4 (effectively f16, f4X2X2) ISO-400 full frame (cropped to fit 6:4.5 format).
Excellent shot! Congratulations.
Excellent shot. Well done!
Wow, you have won zillions of EC's since I last looked (knew you would), sorry so quiet, congrats for all and click for others too..
A beauty Su, perfect dof, the yellow of the head standing out well, as for the border nice and simple containing the shot and not overpowering it, well done on the Ec,
