I should have taken the extender out so he would not be so tight in the frame.

Very nice effect. I would have been inclined to dial in +1/3 to +2/3 exposure compensation, but this is still a nice photo.

He is beautiful and tack-sharp, Tom, and I love that background. Perhaps the extender enhanced it. Vote
