Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

He was getting off his motorcycle, and I shot "from the hip" quickly, not knowing what I'd get. When we saw this, we were both astonished at how his eyes perfectly reflected the blue sky. He says he "doesn't do sun," but I say, with eyes like these, he'd better remove those shades more often!

    What a super-cool portrait!! Couldn't be better, Laura! I'd clone out the electric wires [5 minutes] and print it to canvas... perhaps as a gift to him.

    WOW.
    No, really, WOW. I'm assuming you used flash, because I know I can't get eyes to look like that against the sky unless there's flash. Love the crop, love the blues, love the contrast (perfect amount) and love the attitude.
    Great caption, too.
    I'd like to see more portraits. =)
