I would like some feedback please on this was taken with a 55-300 lense and was hard to track.

Its a good shot of the kite.Pity you couldn't have caught it when it was flying towards you.
If you use Photoshop or any similar software, then I would be tempted to increase the brightness in 'levels'and maybe a little sharpening. Otherwise, considering the lens you were using, its a good capture.
Best wishes

Thanks ian for your advice. It was my first time out with my camera. Could you give me some feedback on the other pics I know the sheep pic is out of focus it was taken on the same day as the kite.

Taking up the ISO might be a good start, the sort of dull grey light we are experiencing at the moment in no way helps these type of shots where you are are shooting into the shadow created by your subject!
As mentioned in an earlier comment, try selective dodging in Photoshop, process subtlety.
Bringing up brightness will increase colour noise, if this does happen, run the image through the 'Luminance' filter no more than 8%,. Any more will start causing deteriation in fine detail.

The most important advice though, keep snapping, try at 100mm or so, when you are locked onto the subject, track and zoom at the same time.

Practice makes perfect.

Thanks for all your comments,yes this weather doesn't help I have looked at photoshop didn't realise it was so expensive!

Photoshop Elements is cheaper and would be all you need for your post processing.

I would second Ian's suggestion. Photoshop Elements can do all that the average photographer would need.
