    Great shot Steve!

    Looks like you lit them. Very nice effect.

    I have been wondering about putting a 2x on my 300. I sure do like the 1.4x, but I just wonder about the loss of AF. I could probably live with a couple of stops light loss.

    Thanks terry.

    Not at that distance. Just some good reflected light off the snow. (+ I pushed the exposure a little and added a couple vignettes in post)



    I shot this image with the 1DII. I don't loose auto focus with that camera. (can only use one shot and center dot though)

    I really haven't used the 2x much, but i'm happy with the results, from this shoot.

    I really didn't think you actually did, Steve, but it sure looks that way! I would have guessed you found a way to light them from below and was able to convince them to come and pose for you in your exact hidden lighting while you snagged them at 600mm! Not that I would I would put it past you to pull it off!

    But I am curious. With your 1DII and the 2x, do you have a noticeable slowing of your AF? Or is it still relatively snappy?

    This quick enough? Ever shoot moving targets , in one shot, and still get the focus? I have a few of him running and still have sharp focus. Just an amazing focus system, on the D series. At only 8mp, it's not the sharpest camera in the world, but if i click the shutter, odds are, it will be in sharp focus.

    Thanks donald, i like the triangulation of heads. Your eye keeps going from head to head, in a circle. Strong compositional component.
