Here is a fun one, the first posted picture with my new lens
Quantaray 70-300mm @ 300mm
Exposure Adjustment in PS CS -.27
Little bit of sharpening to please my eye.
A side note, Quantaray is a relatively cheap brand of lens sported by Ritz Camera. I believe it is manufactured by Sigma and Tamron as a house brand and does not auto focus with the D40 but did only cost $149.00 (us) new. To me its a decent beginner lens for someone who dosnet want to risk a large investment.
