    I enjoy taking photos at night and the other night I noticed that our local pd was watching me, so I grab a couple of shots same car same lens but I added a 2x doubler to the second shot.
    The first picture was taken with the following times and f-stops
    0"4 f5.6 iso 1600
    Lens was set a 300mm

    The second one was 3"2 f5.6 iso 1600
    This one was with a 2x doubler so would of been 600mm
    The camera is a canon rebal XT, the lens Quantaray 70-300mm LDO.
    Fell free to pick apart.

    Of the two, I would say the first one if you could somehow get rid of the sign in the foreground.

    they are both very blurry, the second image is blurrier though.

    Also, the second image is overexposed a bit.

    why would you take a picture of a cop while he is looking in your direction hahaha

    but they are both very blury, the second one is a lot worse and the first one is still blury and has that huge sign in the front,

    so i dont know if i could choose

    I would go with the first one too. Perhaps you can crop out the sign but keep the same image ratio.

    LoL, he looks a little pissed, as if he just finished off his last donut and the nearest donut shop is 10 miles away.

    For one, with the 2x doubler your 300mm f/5.6 just became a 600mm f/11. Ya, really. Something to think about.

    They're both blurry and have horrible purple fringing. Honestly I would have deleted both of them. Sorry.

    Like everyone else has said - I'd go with the first one. Wonder what the cop was thinking!
