Tauhou - シルバー・アイ
Nelson, New Zealand
Ai-S Nikkor 300mm F4.5 ED-IF
Tamron SP AF 2X Teleconverter (300F)
F11, 1/30, ISO-400
I can't believe I did this with hand-held. 300mm + 2x teleconverter on DX camera = 900mm effective focal length with 1/30 of shutter speed. Not bad at all! Well, this is the most sharp one out from about 10 trial shots. Obviously better with tripod, no doubt about that.
Compare to the reflex 500mm lens, I prefer this combination to gain 500mm+. it's mainly by bokeh that rendered by the reflex. This is more natural than doughnuts rings all over (that was fun or effective in some case).
