    First "real" photos I've posted in a loooongg time
    By "real", I just mean not the regular family stuff I usually post. I just bought a 1.4 teleconverter and finally had some time today to test it out. It's very nice I must say!

    Here's a couple photos from the 20 or so test shots I took. All 10D, 70-200L f4 at 200mm. Handheld, 1600 ISO with 1.4 teconvertor (around 1/750 second shutter or so). I'm pretty happy with the resuls of this :)

    Nice job
    Trevor,

    Isn't it fun to have new toys, um, I mean tools.

    First photo- Nice separation of the background with your chosen f-stop and use of a longer lens. Colors are pleasing to my eye.

    Second photo- This is my favorite of the two. I like the simplicity of the photo along with the fine detail of the bark and flower. Beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing,

    I've wondered
    about the 1.4 teleconverter and if it would compromise the optical quality.

    Well, I have my answer. These are beautiful, clean, sharp, great color. No compromise here. They are both excellent, but the 2nd one is awesome. It's simple but the beauty of the flower against the wood really stands out.

    Thanks for posting. I have one L lens - the Canon 200mm/f2.8 which is also a beautiful lens. Sometimes the results almost take my breath away - like your 2nd one here. :cool:
