This shot is fantastic. You really know how to put natural lighting into good use.

And great PP as always!

Its 2:20 am over there and seeing this just made me really really hungry lol.

What length did you shoot this with? I'm assuming 70 since it's hard to shoot food really up close huh?

thanks so much for the kind words! i was really hungry as it was lunch time so i kinda just messed around w/ a few focal lengths... the metadata for that photo says 190mm so i think i was just about to stop shooting and eat lol... but with the MFD being a couple feet for this lens, usually you hafta zoom in closer to avoid a lot of crop work later in PP :D

190mm o.O does that mean you were pretty far away then? And MFD means minimal focal distance right :o don't know my camera terms lol

They look great for having a TC in the mix. I wonder if the mark iii TC's would be any improvement over the previous?

Thanks, from what I've heard in the Canon 1.4x II versus III debate, the AF speed improves slightly and sharpness is slightly better in the mids/corners with the III, but it's not a huge improvement unfortunately. The Kenko pro 1.4x extender actually has slightly better sharpness in the center, but the price for that is worse mids/corners and slower AF.

As for the the 2x, the III is actually a pretty nice improvement over the II in all aspects, especially when mated to a newer lens, i.e. the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II and the crazy expensive super telephotos from the last 3 years. I just got the 2x III so I should have some pics up using that soon if you wanna check it out.

I think Ricku should be held to a different standard. He has an in-house model! It's not fair, lol.

Love this lens, I sold my 100-400 to help fund it (also bought the 2x but have yet to try it)

That is a sweet shot Rick. I would make a large print if I were you. Btw, how about making a tutorial on your post processing techniques?

I am really curious to see and hear more about this lens with the 2XIII. Is the IS still effective?

I was using mine on a very bright day and stopped down to around f/8 for most shots, but was still using some pretty fast shutter speeds (1/800, 1/640 for my gator and anole shots I posted earlier)

I was very impressed but I can try some tests this weekend if I get a chance.
