    Hey folks, I picked up a Nikkor 70-300mm AF-S VR today for my trusty D5000. I've seen good results with it from other people and figured it was fairly future proof if I make the jump to an FX body in another year or so.

    So far, I love it. Only downside is weight, but I expected that. Here's some results of my first photo walk, any C&C is appreciated!

    #2 - This was a small plant, took it in fading evening light, but I think it turned out great:

    #3 - This isn't the best (from a technical standpoint), but it captures something I didn't expect to see:

    Are these processed or not? The colors are pretty good especially on that first shot with a bit of sunlight..

    A bit of color correction and exposure correct done afterwards (and cropping). That's it, no fancy stuff. Well I don't consider that fancy at least :)

    I quite like that bit of (goose) drama you captured in #3, and it looks tack sharp! I'm not surprised to hear that you like your new lens!

    Thanks all! The last picture that was sort of "meh" I was mainly trying out the closeup abilities of this lens. It focuses down to 1.5 meters, so at 300 (or 450mm 35mm) I was hoping to get nice crisp closeups.

    It'll tide me over until I get a proper macro :)
