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 fabulous - all this time I thought just I was weird, but now I find out john and jake, my two idols, are weird too. hmmm you know supposedly the rest of the entire world just loves pears....maybe we're just a little shallow in the taste bud gene pool.

    Why is it so grainy?

  • peggy gardner

    peggy gardner said (9 Sep 2008):

    pears are gritty, I didn't say grainy.
    If you're asking about the print itself, it is a polaroid image transfer on textured paper...maybe that's what you mean?

  • Nicole Gesmondi

    Nicole Gesmondi gave props (11 Sep 2008):

    excellent polaroid transfer!

  • Catherine Kurvink

    Catherine Kurvink gave props (19 Sep 2008):

    Count me among those who wouldn't call pears my favorite fruit (i.e. I don't eat them, lol). But this photograph is definitely delectable! Yeah for you, Peggy.
