Default Virgin Aeorplane and Carnation

I took the aeroplane with the L55 lens and the Carnation with the macro lens. I enhansed the Carnation as Clint's suggestion but only cropped the aeroplane. Given it was quite a distance away can i expect to get better?

You don't have much to with which to work on the airplane. That's a tough shot under any circumstances.

The carnation in my eyes looks better than the original. You've brought out the colors.

Thanks Clint, i agree the carnation looks better so that is something else learnt, thanks to you for that.
The aeroplane was difficult i guess as it was a snap shot as opposed to having time to think about it.

Just to be able to follow it and capture it is a plus. That's hard to do!!

Eysha, working with additional lenses requires patience and practice. Getting the right focus is not easy. The auto focus may not always work well with a lens attached. If the subject is close, you will have to move the camera a little forward or backward to achieve the perfect focus. If the subject is a little away, you can try using the manual focus, but again, it is difficult with a moving subject. So, I suggest you first start practising with stationary objects and then move towards birds and planes.
