Thanks for the comments.

Shooting into a bright, sunny backlight, it required several tries. This was shot at the full 300mm in a 3-shot auto bracket burst,with the settings for contrast, saturation, and sharpness set to +2. I thought this shot came out closest to the look that I was trying for.

Good shot. It's not easy shooting in that kind of light. I think the 70 300 is the best buy out there for the price range.
