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?

Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit...
Ecclesiastes 7:8

I am hoping by the time I get to the end of my daily diary series that my techniques will have shown improvement from when I started. It has taken an enormous amount of patience and I won't tell you how many times I have done my self portraits over and over to get it right. I will say it is good practice and I don't regret that I started this series.

    This is truly a gem. Frame this and present it to Mr. P for Christmas. I agree with Joe.

    There is improvement with each one of them, but that does not mean your older ones are any less fun to look at. You take it seriously and do it well.

    I think they have all been good! You do wear certain colors better than others! All the creative backgrounds you've, would be hard to choose just one favorite!

    This is a wonderful SP Andrea. It does take a lot of patience to do this 1/365 series. I too have been glad that I have done the theme, I have learned a lot about my camera, lighting and myself. You did excellent with the lighting in this photo and the color of your dress goes very well with the background.

    I love your SP series. I know several JPGrs do them and to me one must have such dedication to follow thru for a whole year! I love seeing your smiling face in them! Don't get discouraged! They are really good!

    Beautiful SP, Andrea! I can only imagine the patience it must take to complete this series. I enjoy looking at your SPs every day. I give you credit, because to me, it would be a daunting task. You should be very proud of your SPs and the knowledge you've gained in faithfully doing them! Let's not forget your wonderful poetry, either!!

    You have made great strides in your techniques. I always loved your SPs, but they are much more "polished" now. This is lovely, Andrea.
