Thanks. TC = Teleconverter, it increases the focal length by 1.4 times.

Thanks samurai will forward the compliment to my friend...he'll be thrilled. He says it was just an out-of-the-blue shot that just turned out so good ! I think its amazing too !

edit: Btw samurai...this was taken with a Fuji FinePix F10 6MP cam. Even these cams tend to surprise sometimes dont they !

Well, composition doesn't depend on the camera. These days most P&S can produce great images if the photographer knows how to shoot. Therefore I find it funny when people ask which camera? moment they see a good photo.

Thnx Samurai.

I would like to add some filters to my kit but dont know much about it. Thinking of UV, Polariser, diffuser & an infrared based on some info got from some of the sites. basically the reviews from dpreview.com. Pls. share your views.

Actually I am not much of a filter user. I have UV filter on my lenses for protection. But considering each one of my lens has different diameter, I haven't bothered with filters. Besides there is the option of applying software filter via PS.
