Abdulrahman, You have a great grasp of composition in all the photos you have posted! Your images could be a little sharper. 1/320 sec shutter speed is probably not enough at 300mm especially if you don't have image stabilization. Keep up the good work!

thanks a lot I really appreciate your advice sir i just have one question for a 300mm what shutter speed should i go between ? Red Whitenbleau

Rule of thumb is the shutter speed should be at least equal to the focal length of the lens... 300mm = 1/300 sec. I feel that's not quite enough when you get into longer focal lengths unless you are using a tripod. Also, your lens is at wide open aperture, generally not the best for sharpness. Obviously you will have to go higher with the ISO to go to a faster shutter speed or smaller aperture. I would suggest starting at 1/500 sec with the f/5.6 apertures then start going to smaller apertures. It really is a learning process so don't be afraid to keep experimenting until you find the best result!
