This weekend we visited the site of the Jamestown settlement in Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in the Western Hemisphere. Of course, none of the original buildings from 1607 remain since they were built from rough-hewn log using construction techniques like these.

The history of the site is conveyed through re-creations and living history interpreters.

Of course, one of the best-known stories of early Jamestown is that of Pocahontas, daughter of the native American chief, Powhatan.

Hard to imagine that the early colonists had nothing to protect them from the wilderness but a wall like this

Other threats came from the water and were dealt with in a little more convincing manner

The Pentax K10D is a fine camera, but your images look to dull, why are you using ISO 1250 in daylight for, for a minute there i thought you were using the S6000fd, but the K10D is capable of way nicer images, just my opinion

Hercules, the answer is as simple as it is stupid. I had been shooting in low-light conditions (thus the high ISO) earlier that morning, and I simply forgot to change it. Even a great camera can't always overcome its operator.

It must have been agreat experience to beable to feel the breeze of history blowing in such a place which took its share richly...

Ah, watching marely the images will not compete of course!

Btw,such re-creations and living history interpreters are really worthy of appreciation : )

My favourite is thepicture in which Pocahontas stands!

Though Hercules' s remark which youquite agreed:lol: isright, still the camera handled the situation wellconsidering the bright and contrasty lighting conditions whichchallenges mercilessly the dynamic range already weakened by a high ISO well over 1000!!

As far as I know k10D is a camera which is intended to be quite conservative about the 'default' outputrelying a lot uponthe preference of its owner.

Here's a very quick version at which I did not eventouch the saturation...Pleaseregard it as my appreciation for the original : )
