    Did you PS any of these? They don't look sharp. It can be because you didn't use a tripod.

    Sparkie

    no tripod, seeing what I could do with the lens and camera, I am sure tripod or monopod would help a lot, have monopod. very little PS cropped some contrast, darkended a bit of light, lightened a bit of dark, all very very basic as I am even more of a novice there then with DSLR. my daughter is the one with some nice production skills in photo and video..........damn kids today
    also only flipped the switch on the lens, and set camera to macro, no other adjustments made, I'm still learning, This is one tough hobby to learn, but it sure is fun!!

    Wow these are great, esp for handheld.... you really hand held it at 200-300mm (because you mentioned macro settings on the lens)? I guess it was bright, haha

    Good work!
