Just a few images from our visit with the kids and grandson. Sunny, the dog, was our first grandchild. My stepson had bought her to keep his wife company while he was deployed over to Kuwait, but she ended up being deployed before he left. So, we got to raise her the first 9 months of her life. She also came the next time they were both overseas. She may be getting up in age, but she's still quite active.

And, even though my grandson had a cold while we were there he was still active. A lot of my shots were just blurs.

Nothing as fun and rewarding as taking pictures of the grandbabies! You caught some wonderful expressions.

Nice Patty!
the K20 seems to be so much more vivid than the K10.

The lighting on #2 and #4 are very nice. The shaddow on the one side of your pup's face and the color temperature of your grandson are especially good.Did you use an external flash or was this the on-board pop-up flash?

Thanks everyone.

Tom - The first three were taken with the kit lens (18-55) and the last one with the 50mm. I wasn't as happy with the quality of the last one. But, I just loved the expression on his face. I'm still trying to learn how best to use that lens. I'm going to start trying to do more manual focusing. And, get away from having that lens on the A setting. I just need to learn how to do that. I've been reading through Yvon Bourque's book on the K20 and have a million questions about things. I'll post some in a different thread.

Glenn - Couldn't agree with you more. He is now 21 months. We hadn't seen him since he was 12 months. We missed so much of his experiences. We really have to get down there more. It's only 5 hours away!

Thanks, Phil. #4 was my favorite, too. #3 he was sitting on the single carousel ride and we couldn't figure out what he kept looking up at. But, he sure was happy on that. His first trip to Chucky Cheese. We wanted to go to the zoo or something, but it was just too cold. Next trip.

GW - Yes, I notice that it is much more vivid than the K100, also. I'm also noticing I don't need to do as much processing on the photos with the K20 as the K100. I'm loving this camera!

Patty
