I likes the light that fell on her face, making it possible for the details among the black head plumageto bevisible.

Great shot Wk7leung, with nice lighting, exposureand composition. Did you shoot this with the Nikon 300mm F4?.. and if you did have you tried that lens with the 1.4x EII tc?

Very nice! I agree, the slight bit of light on the face really works.

Beautiful bird wk7leung! The lighting makes it stand out and the pose allowing the catch light in the eyetops it off.

Thanks all for viewing and giving comments.

Kem: This shot was taken with a Nikkor f4 300mm with a 1.4X on; fill flash had been used.The setting is great and the 1.4X does no harm at all to theimage quality of the 300mm.

The 1.4X I am usingisby Nikon. It is better than Kenko pro 1.4X for three reasons: a much strong built, a bit better in optics and more importantly a continuation of the AFS function.

The consofthis 1.4X is with theglassthat faces the lens to which it is attached. The glassprotrudes up the central axis andits rimmatches well with theinterior barrel of the attaching lens. So, when makingalightment, the rear part of the attaching lens may scratch the glass of the 1.4X and cause irreversible damage. This seemingly is also the problem for Canon's 1.4X, but not the case for Kenko pro 1.4X.

There are, however,merits with the protruding design as well as the fitness in rim, whichcreatea oneness in combination for the final set up. So, used with care,Nikkor 1.4X is really a wonderful device to increase reach.
