    #1 - The shadow...but it's a nice sharp image.

    #2 - The bird is a little dark on my monitor, but it's a nice capture...nice shallow DOF. Sharp image too.

    #3 - Another nice sharp image...don't care to be looking at his cloaca though.

    Which lens did you use to shoot these?

    I was using a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

    Yeah I was having quite the shadow issues on all of these. That's what I would like to change.

    Wow, you got a very good copy of that lens. And it does really well at 300mm...much better than the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III that I have. When I zoom all the way out to 300mm my pictures get a lot of CA so I stopped using it awhile ago. Was thinking of getting the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM but have been getting primes instead.

    I think the primes are the way to go. They are so expensive though. That's the only reason I haven't got one yet. I thought my 70-300mm lens was bad at first, but seem to be taking good photos with it right now. I still want to get an L series lens, but my money is really tight at th emoment.

    Thanks for all of your comments, everyone!
