  1. This is the first image I've posted for critique. Shot on 1DM2 + Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 + Tamron 2x tc.

  2. Nice compositon and lighting, good highlight management.
    Keep shooting for a little more sharpness. Faster shutter speeds help, 1/1600s or faster. The lens should be sharp. I haven't had the best of luck with the 2X TC.

  3. Thanks - I didn't reply to any of your threads, but it was your amazing BIF threads that compelled me to upload one :D.

    The lens was good, but with the cheapo 2x tc degraded. I now only have my 70-300 as my long lens, and past 200mm it does soften, but I'll give it another go.
