Those are all great! The detail is fantastic and seems to be right on.

I am finding that my K10D focuses just great with shorter lenses, like the flower shot I just posted, but still falls just short with long lenses with shallow DOF. Mine is front focus all the time, so I guess I will have to send it back to Pentax for them to look over and then see waht happens.

Nice capture. Those old lenses are really worth it.
This reminds me that there is a really nice old library around here, not sure if they will let me take shots though. I will give it a try soon.

Thanks for the complements, everyone.

The library folks basically ignore me, but I also don't shoot right in front of them. I never use flash (pointless with the distances anyway) and just quietly go about taking pictures. There's enough rustling of papers and soft clicks of keyboards that the shutter isn't noticeable. It wouldn't surprise me if they occasionally have photography students shooting in it, too.

I get more strange looks when I've taken pictures of the track team practicing than I have at the library.
