I have been using the vivtar 2x, but had to manually focus, so bought the canon, for auto focus and thinking I could use it for future lens...Unfortunately, the light was very dim, just starting to rain. So, the results could be better, maybe I should have used the flash...??? Thanks for looking and helpful comments. Donna

nice work, Donna... the first is excellent -the best of the three, i think. the second seems a little lacking in contrast (weather and lighting conspired against you in that one), and the last is just a bit soft. still, the new converter seems to be working well for you!

I like the third one hands down... it is composed perfectly and the bokeh/background is great. If I may be kind and point out a few nits... :-) The first photo looks like you used a large radius spot clone stamp to the right of the birds head and the third one has a dirt spot on the sensor if you look to the far left of the photo... one other thing I noticed on that third shot is a line (light white) on the right hand side... possible banding? The second shot is tough for me as I'm not a big fan of sticks blocking an image. Your improving and it's nice to see, I wouldn't offer up this cc unless I thought you'd learn and improve from it... besides your a good contributor here as far as posting and commenting goes and I appreciate that trait in you. :-)

Okay I see what you guys are saying...the clone comment is right, maybe I can fix that in raw...don't know about banding and I probably need to clean my sensor. The branch doesn't seem a big deal in the second and the third is a bit soft, that is why I like the first best, it seems sharper...thanks guys for your help. Donna

Very nice, Donna. I have a feeling that combo is going to work out much better for you.

Thanks Bob and Jeff, appreciate any helpful comments. We are in for a week of rain, so I will be struggling with poor lighting conditions this week...Donna
