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?

This is a little bit of an older shot taken about a month ago in July. I really wanted to post the sunset photo from last night, but I'm having trouble with getting the colors to show up correctly once I upload them to the web, so I'm not sure what's going on there. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

I took this photo on the Apache Trail road when I was out stormchasing with my buddy Brian. I thought the powerlines would ruin the shot, but for some reason I like them, along with the road of course. Have you not yet realized my love for those double-yellow lines disappearing down black asphalt paths?

I mainly took this because of the monsoon cloud off in the had a cool look to it, was more dreamy than scary and it had a little bit of rain falling from the bottom.

    The color, texture, and lighting is beautiful. I also love the vehicle far, far in the distance.

    Yep, I get the yellow line thing.....they always look just perfect in your photos. I really like that little patch of blue sky, and the touch of golden sunlight on the mountains on the left.

    I share your passion for such shots as these, where the road leads both the eye and imagination along its path unto the vanishing distance. I think the reason the power lines are less a distraction than they usually are is because the storm is close to centered between the road and power lines.

    Try converting your shot to sRGB in photoshop or some other program and get the colors to look how you want it. Then upload to JPG, there should be very little shift. The web shows photos in sRGB. BTW, nice shot
