New lens another try
 
4 Attachment(s)
Well Just got my new Tamron 70 - 300 for my Nikon D3000. I also took some of the advice that I got from my last 2 post and tried again. Less backs, shoot within the lenses range and shoot from a lower angle.

I knew from reviews that I read that the Tamron auto focus was a little slow, it is, bit it still fills my need as a mixed sports, landscape and wildlife lens.

As always your c&c are welcome.

I like them. I like them better than the shots you posted in Spring soccer. Tighter composition is a big part of the improvement..

I agree, seems that you got some good advice and took it on board. Keep at it and you will see improvement all the time. Remember to be patient and let the action come within range rather than shooting too far which will make photos very soft.

Thanks guys. Practice, Practice, Practice is my goal. I have also found surfing these forums helps a lot as well.

This is an amazing source of excellent information, isn't it?

I'm most likely going to buy this lens in the next couple of weeks for my Nikon d50 but I need to know. Whats with all that fringing on the first photo?

Purple fringing is very common in consumer telephotos. You can't have everything for < $200 :)

... or even < $400. :)

I have not yet tried this fix but after the question on Fringing came up I found this post. Not sure how well it works but they make the fix look pretty good.

Your photos have some CA but not a lot. And if ever CA will put in an appearance, it's on uniforms on a bright sunny day. It's not that bad, and I wouldn't worry about it unless I were printing a 5x7 or larger.
