That was a memorable day. If I was still shooting A Mount, I would post a couple of mine.

Nice shot chthoniid, the 300/4 showing off it's sharpness and detail. It only looks a little flat on my monitor, maybe a levels adjustment (especially at the light end) will give it some more pop.

Went to the San Diego Zoo yesterday on a very hot day.
All shots taken with a 70-400G SSM f/4.-5.6 mounted on a Sony A900 handheld-only.
No post-processing done. Let me know what you think.

This is my first post, so hopefully everything goes okay! These were taken last year at SF Zoo. Both with A100 and Tamron 70-300mm:

@JG-Photography: good series of animal close-ups. Couple of comments:
- maybe post them the next time with an empty line inbetween, so each photo stands by itself
- did you sharpen after downsize? As you said no PP done I think you didn't which makes them look a bit soft. I think A900 + 70-400G can do better.

Some specific comments on the pics:
1: cute, and a nice off-center composition
2: could you have gone down further to get closer to eye level?
3: background is a bit busy and colorwise quite close to the elefant, nice catch on the shower though
4: good sharpness and a bit central, also w/o another duck in the background it would stand out more
5: well spotted, but I think the sharpness plane is just in front of the eye. Would have been better is the eye was the sharpest
6: a bit busy and the cut off head of the one in the background distracts me. There's better flamingo pics in your smugmug.


@josj: nice ones and good detail/sharpness. The meercats are cute like this and the dolphins are at "just" the right moment. Beercan I presume?

@ jdmoody : welcome to dyxum and nice pics. Glad all went well with your first post.
