Thanks: I used me Tamron di 70-300 f4-5.8 macro lens, for an inexepensive lens I really am liking it.

Here is the EXIF on the photo, this was handheld through the kitchen window. :)
ISO Speed Ratings = 800
Focal Length = 300mm
Metering Mode = Spot
Exposure Time = 1/250"
F Number = F5.5
Exposure Program = Shutter priority
On my Canon 10D

All I did in PSP9 was a little tighter crop and a touch of USM.

Yup new lens, not the best but what I could afford, and I'm pretty pleased. Sun shade sucks not the easiest to get on and off. Like all the reviews say it is a little soft at the extremes but not that bad that a little tweak in PS or PSP, USM can't fix. Digital tends to be soft by it's nature.

With the hood, try this tip. Wipe your finger over your nose (not inside your nose, but over the top of your nose ;) ), then take the hood and wipe your finger around the inside of it where it attaches to the lens... and then do the same thing wiping it around the lens where the hood attaches. Then put it on and off a few times.... then repeat the process. This is solved most of my tight hood problems. Sounds kind of gross I guess, but facial oil is a great mild lubricant for hoods and works great.

Very nice pictures, by the way... good and sharp.

But it works very well, and a lot of people use this technique. The great thing is you always have a fresh supply.

Lens pimples... that's funny!
