    Well after drooling over Juza Photography for the last couple of weeks I got inspired to go out and take some nature shots at Cedar Hill state park in Texas, unfortunately all I have for telephoto is a 75-300 canon non IS USM lens. So I did a couple of test and found it worked best at F8. I also found the lens stayed at the 300mm spot. I realize the shots aren't great but I spent alot of time farting around trying to get decent shots and these were the best I could do with this lens. Any c/c or other advice appreciated.

    Not bad considering your stated limitations. Your crops seem sharper than what I get from my sigma zoom (see sig for details).

    I like the Mallard shot (cropped version), but wish the weed wasn't going right through the reflection.

    Yeah that stupid weed , I worked for 30minutes trying to remove the weed but was unsuccessful. I then gave up realizing the the picture wasn't worth the time. Thanks.
