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 Smile

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.

Congrats on EC. Didn't realise you could stack convertors and get this quality. What 300mm are you using?

Well done

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.

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

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)
suleesia 12 176 Malaysia
29 Jul 2005 9:57AM
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 Wink

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 Smile

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.

Techies' Bits
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).

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,
