Kind of a "Let's see how this does" moment.

M200 + Focal x2 converter = 400mm.

I'll likely never use this converter again. The converter made it extremely difficult to get a photo worth keeping, and image quality suffered badly.

K3, f/8, 1/320, ISO 800.

Well that doesn't show in your pictures! Nice catch.

Kudos, it's really a very, very good picture.
How did you manage to focus while being on the "wrong" side of the camera?
Also, Flickr says "no flash", so I suppose you either used a real flash or an off-camera one.

I keep hearing how we need to have the latest lens or we won't get good pictures. Especially auto-focus; that has to be fast. So how come you do such a good picture with a "has been" manual lens?

Thank you for your opinion about my picture. I took this picture without flash only with 2 table lamp. I put some subject on the right place and focused on them, then i put myself at the same place and did few shoots.
