My K100D arrived yesterday and here area few pictures taken at Pemaquid Point on the coast of Maine this afternoon.I'm a beginner DSLR user so these were taken in auto mode but I hope to change that soon!! I've only had the camerafor aday but so far I love it, what a difference compared to p&s.Any shooting advice would be appreciated. :-)

Hi Jeanne,

Looks like you're off to a great start. It must be awsome being from a place that looks like 360 degrees of photo ops. Welcome to the Pentax DSLR forum. My only suggestion would be that you take tons of shots of everything you can, then post the ones you like best here. Looking forward to more scenes from the northeast.

Scott

WOW!!!!! Those are BEAUTIFUL! I love the Maine coast. I've been up through there a few times (Ireally likeCamden).

I'm glad to see you like your K100D. Mine should be here tomorrow! Those were taken on the full-auto mode with the kit lens? Amazing.

Thanks for the compliments althoughit's pretty hard to take a bad picture with scenery like that so I don't know how much credit I can really take. :-)

gadgetnut - Yes, these were taken in full auto-mode with the 18-55 kits lens...as a beginner anyway, I was impressed. Camden is a cute little town,I actually live inland about 25 minutesbutI try to avoid Camden in the summer months, too many tourists!!:-) I'm sure you're going to have as much fun with your K100 as I'm having with mine after just one day!!

I know exactly what you mean. I live 15 minutes from Gettysburg. I hate driving through there during tourist season.

Keep posting those pics! With scenery like that, mine will be quite boring in comparison. :sad:

Really nice - though it takes more than just outstanding scenery to make interesting pictures like these (I've seen lots of lousy Yosemite pictures, many of them my own!). Keep posting yours - they are lovely and interesting.
