Hi guys. Had a little day out today, as we have a 4 day weekend for easter.

G/f took some pics as well with "her" DL2.

Me at the castle



Concentrating hard!




Centurion hat.



And a few actually taken by me. Shooting RAW+jpg and just uploaded the jpg. Not played with at all, straight from camera.

15m well that used to serve the castle



Boudica's chariot, used in the film staring Alex Kingston



What was thought were kids toys, turned out to be a wealthy man's ornaments



A Roman merchant ship at port



A childs toy butchers!



A Roman



Where you could be put if you were naughty. A lot of people were seriously injured or died in these.







Thanks for looking. Comments on the jpg system welcome.

Thanks for sharing these, I love castles and Europe in general and England in particular are among my dream places to visit. I think the "child's toys" shot might need some w/b adjustment. When I get a K10 the RAW +jpg mode may be the way I ease into working with RAW. Thus far, I remain a jpg shooter on my k100.

Thanks for looking Tim, and your kind comments about my country. From what I've heard from friends, Florida is also a great place to visit. It is on my wish list.

Hmmm. I once, tongue in cheek, said that we should arrange a Steve's Pentax forum house exchange. Swap houses for a week or two and leave directions to the best photography spots in the area. :-) It would be a cool idea, unfortunately the logistics would make it nigh impossible I am afraid.

Your girlfriend seems to be having a good time with the DL, almost as much fun as you are with the K10. These are nice pictures - museums aren't the easiest places to take photos.

Thanks for your comments Roger and Mtngal.

Sounds like a good idea Tim, but as you say it could prove difficult. That's one of the reasons I love this forum. People from all over the world post pictures I wouldn't otherwise see.


With the museum shots, I used the Zenitar 16mm for all shots. It can sometimes give you a little advantage over the 18-50 Sigma I now have.
