    I really like the colors

    I think a CPL (maybe?) would help bring out more of the frog on the last one. At first I didn't see the body and was like what's that... OH wow cool he's got really long legs!

    Sparkie,

    Those were very beautiful shots. I'm loving it!

    Are those color original or you used some software to enhanced it?

    Can I know what lens are you using for all those shots? I was thinking of getting one too.

    Here's the EXIF on the frog

    Camera Make: SONY
    Camera Model: DSLR-A100
    Image Date: 2008:08:04 21:18:34
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 300.0mm (35mm equivalent: 450mm)
    Exposure Time: 0.013 s (1/80)
    Aperture: f/8.0
    ISO equiv: 100
    White Balance: Auto
    Metering Mode: Center Weight
    Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)
    I'm 99.9% sure he's using the Tamron 70-300mm Di f/4-5.6 lens. It's a great lens especially considering the price!

    And I'm pretty sure those are the original colors.

    Thanks dr4gon. I'm currently using Sony A300 with the DT55-200mm
    f/4-5.6 kit lens. Comparing the Sony 55-200 against Tamron 70-300 in term of color quality & sharpeness, do you think both of them are on par or the Tamron is much superior than Sony?

    Sparkie, could you confirm the type of lens you're using? Thanks.

    Tamron 70-300mm

    I also use the Tamron lens above, rich full colors, I just need to use the camera settings better It is also a VERY nice lens for the price IMHO. and has been highly suggested for quality/price/function.

    Thanks Dr4gon
    Yes it is my Tamron 70-300. I am real happy with the lens. Those are the original colors. I did edit in PS just contrast, curves and some sharpness. I had the Quantary 70-300 and was happy with that until the AF got stripped. I was told this was a common problem with these lenses. Don recommended the Tamron an as usual with his recommendations they are right on.

    P.S. Dr4gon I will try to post the EXIF on my posts.

    fountain of change

    I don't think those fountains are anywhere here in the midwest Don, but I will keep looking also. Man do people get upset when you TAKE money out of those things Hmmnn extra change ideas, lets see Frank your close to the beach right? so camera in one hand metal detector in the other let us know what you find! I hear you can sell your blood plazma like once every couple of weeks, maybe look into recycled metals, so drink more beer in cans! It seems that B+H has a pretty good payment plan, anyone use it? the only draw back is they do expect to be paid. anyone else have ideas?
    Also Don or anyone else have ideas for old Minolta or current Tamron lenses that are going to be overlooked, and therefore maybe drop down in price as people "focus" on the full frame? seems you can't go wrong with that 6 yr. warranty on new Tamrons though. What about any Tokina's

    Don't know what happened, there it was. I think I forgot to hit paste!

    I love tamron lol, just got ordered my 3rd lens today and can't wait for it (90mm Di Macro F/2.8). Their 6 year warranty is great and their quality on their lenses is excellent. Some are better than others but on the average they all work well.
