Hi Adrian,

This is a great in flight picture with fabulous detail and colours. Well composed.
just wondering if you would you recommend the converter?
Great capture and TFS

Hi Adrian. I hope you had a good time the weather was bright for you. Even with the 2x converter you a fine inflight picture. It would be intersting to have seen it with a canon 1.4 converter. All that said its a picture i would have like to have taken. I have yet to even see one. The markings of the under wing show up well. TFS.

hello Adrian,
excellent in flight shot and photo output!
keep photographing! TFS


This is one of the best kite pics i've seen for a while. I'm guessing you had snow on the ground? The underside of the kite seems to be well lit something snow does very well as it reflects the light back up onto the underside?

Great sharpness especially around the birds head.
