Shroomer  8 England167 Constructive Critique Points

This is a fine example of how a 2x convertor degrades image clarity, not noticed on general shots but a subject like this it shows the reduction in dof and softness as it has too much glass to go through. Also you will have to manual focus and it is such a fine line to get right handheld which I presume this is.
Get the convertor off and try to get in closer if possible. The pof on the head is good but it dips away around the wings and body unfortunately. I found the best use of a 2x was to remove the glass and use it as a close up tube.
