Okay, having matured into a K30 for a coupkle of months i felt prompted to share a few for comment.

This Snow Leopard was taken in Basel Zoo at xmas time. Sigma DL 100-300. With my partner, her neice and two over excited kids. So I was constantly swapping between the sigma and wr 18-55 lens. The animals were a lot more patient and quite content to have their picture taken.

K30 and 18-55 wr lens.

And this one of a Mountjack deer is a cropped zoom. had to fiddle with the processing a bit, USM sharpen and turned into sepia to cover up any faults . Sigma Dl 100-300

Thanks for looking.

Great colour in the swan photo. The leopard photo looks to have a litte camera shake, but good to see the shot with a decent background in the circumstances you were in. The deer does nothing for me I am afraid.

I think all could of been nice pictures but it looks to me there are focus issues. Try not to rush things, take more time and try and capture your subjects in focus. That way you will get better and more sharper images with less need for processing.
Also check that you have camera shake on.
