    Nice one, Frank.
    Did you nail the focus or is it somewhat front focussed?

    Yikes!

    Love that photo Sonynut!

    My CF card arrived in todays mail to slot into the A300 that arrived friday, so here it is, my first post to the the Sony PotD thread!

    I'm not to happy with it, focus appears to be centred on the seed head occluding the right furl of the fern, tomorrow I'll have a look for more macro-ish images and probably step down a little further to F8 or F9 to try for a little more DOF to get the whole of the central image in, taking more care to see that distracting/focus-robbing features like surrounding grass are a bit more cleared back.

    The background Bokeh however, looks nice IMO,

    I have a few other nice pictures, I took the A300 with it's new CF card with me as I wandered through part of the farm looking for things to shoot (with my rifle, not my camera) taking photos along the way. came back with 2 rabbits and 107 pictures, which I have just cleared down to 15 possibles.
    I'll wait and work on them tomorrow on the other computer with a proper image manipulation software suite tho, this was just a quick and dirty MSPaint resize, rotate and crop job.

    I'm still playing with the camera yet, learning how it feels and how the menus work.

    Nice one, Steve; did you HDR it?

    @Kiwi-snapper.
    You're right that it's not bitingly sharp but you probably just have to get used to the camera.
    Remember that, in good light like that, you can safely use ISO 400/800 to boost your shutter speed.
