Hi, and congrats on 100 posts.

It would help to know what gear you are using and something about the settings, and the conditions when you took the shots. Are these full frame? 100% crop?

The shots are about 50% crops taken with my 20D and sigma 70-300mm APO lens. The shutter speeds were upwards of 1/1000th since it was in full sun. They were f5.0 and ISO 800 (unfortunately I didn't notice the high ISO when shooting, it was from a previous low light shoot).

with this lens,try to keep it to iso 400 and f8 if you can,you`ll get better results,#2 and 3 look quite good.
Don`t sharpen your images but only after resizing for web and then try not to overdo it.

Thanks for the input dv2004. It is good to know f8 is the target for this lens.

That's a pretty shot of the hummer. You got the whole bird, and the colors are quite nice. Is your camera set to center focus?
