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?

Cover the canvas at the first go, and then work on till you see nothing more to add ... Don't proceed according to rules and principles, but paint what you observe and feel. Paint generously and unhesitatingly, for it is best not to lose the first impression ~ Pissaro ~

This image of son Michael and his wife Lauren was incomplete without the Impressionistic touches that created a 'painting' of the image. I love what is possible in post-processing. I also love the depth of feeling evident here.

Hands down... one of my favorites

    Well done, Bailey. Will have to check out this kind of post processing.

    both the post treatment and the diagonal reinforces the strength of anticipation and passion--like that of a painting by one of the 'greats'

    It is always exciting when what I see is what you see. I have loved this image since I shot it but it was always not quite 'finished'. According to Pissaro's quote, I had not painted on until there was nothing more to add. I think the quote has much application to all JPGers regardless of the paths taken to the 'nothing more' end of the final image.

    Wonderful, Bailey!!! I love the quote from Pissaro and your now finished 'painting'!

    This image says so much more than romance and tenderness (if that weren't enough). How Michael and Lauren must treasure it.
