I Won my First DPR Challenge............................
45

I hardly enter them, mostly because I forget to look and see what is available and the ones I like are usually filled when I do look (have entered 11 of them).

But........................

When I saw the challenge for 'Animal Eye Reflection' I knew I had to enter. The problem was picking which one. My love of gators and photographing them up close has given me a large number of gator eye shots to pick from.

I took this photograph with my 50-200 SWD + EC-20 on my first adventure with this combo. I had set out to purposely test this combination in the field to see what it was actually capable of. My conclusion is when I needed the reach (I now have the 300/4 and TC I will probably never use this combo again) and could shoot at slower apertures (aka good light) it was easily capable of producing outstanding images.

Well..............................here is the winning image

50-200 SWD + EC-20 shot wide-open from a 3D printed skimmer pod. The photo has about a 400px crop to tighten up composition.
