I finally got to take some pictures of something other than my backyard. Everything is in Manual mode! I don't think they are too bad for my first few attempts. Not sure if the focus is on point but I'm still working on it. The first couple are of my son at a track meet and the last few are at our local park. The bird photos are behind a tinted glass. Please feel free to critique by pics and let me know how I can improve them. I used a 55-210 lens at the track meet and the 16-50mm and the park I kept looking for a bug of some sort on a flower and this is the only one I could find. Not a keeper.
