    So I got a Quantaray 70-300mm for Christmas. My parents took me out to the Festival of Lights to play with my new toy. #3 was shot with the new lens. Everything else was shot with the 28-90mm.

    nice :) the last one has an odd cropp though.

    Some will say the subjects are too centred, but that is fine to me :)

    a smaller aperture could help the lights not to blur that much, say f/ 8 - 16 .. but then you'd need a tripod probably.

    with night images, if you want to get a black sky, you can push the contrast a bit in post processing and simultaneously reduce the brightness.

    Thanks Alex. :D I didn't think about the whole tripod thing until I was there. Thanks for the tip too.

    My opinion is that numbers two and six are the keepers.

    I'm glad to see that you finally got this "new toy." #3 is a nice photo, better when you use a tripod. I like my 70-300mm, and a tripod difinetly helps. My best friend, Clark Kent, had to pound that into my head (use a tripod). Now I take my tripod everywhere I go. Hope you enjoy & keep up the good work.

    Thanks SpaceNut! Even my parents thought about bringing my tripod and I hadn't thought about it. But by then, it was too late. Silly me! :p
