    Supermel, welcome.

    I'll offer the first piece of advice: get that thing off of ISO1600

    Try 200 outdoors for higher IQ.

    Thanks for the advice. I just checked my ISO settings and it was on auto ISO. I guess that is one I should be checking. Being new and green at this I just thought auto was auto. I appreciate the feedback. Is there a 'cheat' sheet' to get started with some of these settings posted somewhere that gives good starting points or do most people know this stuff already? Thanks In Advance. Melanie

    Bryan Peterson "Understanding Exposure" Revised Edition... under $20 and it's worth the investment it will get you up to speed. In a relatively short time really light reading and a ton of enjoyable illustrations.

    Congrats on the camera Happy Shooting.

    not sure why i need the 70-200 anymore. i think i may sell it. the 300 is a better tele. decisions, decisions...

    The colours of our beautiful country, the setting sun was kissing the yellow giving it an amazing glow. 300mmf4 captured the colours and contrast just beautifully.

    very nice image mate.

    so you dont find the need for zoom range? you are pretty happy with the prime in that sense? its obvious you like its performance, but is the gap from 105-300 too much? and if you decide on selling the 70-200 you mind pm'img me first?

    you're only 8% of the way there mate. lol but yes, i'll pm you if i sell it.

    apart from the 70-200, which i rarely use, i dont have any zoom lens' anymore and quite frankly, i havent missed a zoom either yet.

    Thanks. The photo was another one of those one shot wonders--after the first shot, he hung around for another photo but closed his eyes. Then he had enough.

    That's one of the first things I turned off--I tried taking some low-level light photos in a dust environment and the flash kicked in lighting up all the dust. Yuck.

    Anyways, I see my local baby swans are out and about swiming already, I wondered along with them and snapped a couple shots.
    LOL at the spider comment. And, looking forward to more photos of the baby swans.
