I really like the second and third ones, the first one is very pleasing also, but I don't think the last one is in the same class. I love the colors in the second one.

Is the lens a K-mount or a screw mount? I'm not familiar with it, but it looks like a keeper to me.

Hi Harriet,

Thanks for looking and commenting. The only PP here is a slight levels correction + 100% crop, and resize to post, and a little hipass sharpening. The colour rendition in

#3 is very close to life of this ornamental maples early growth. #4 was the first shot of the series, and as you say less pleasing to the eye. Lens is M42 screwmount, so is

used full manual. Not sure of my facts, but I don't think the Flektogons were ever made in K-mount, if anyone knows better please correct me.

I'll be posting more re. this particular lens under "Pentax lenses". ... Jack

#2 and #3 are really great.
The last one looks a bit too soft I think.
Nice ones

I do agree Sebastian, as I told Harriet that was the first one of the bunch, and on the day I shot these there was an intermittent gusty wind, I think that may have caused

the slight defocussing on that shot. I was using the focus trap technique BTW. ... Jack
