Default Keeping an eye on you

G'Day or Howdy.

As you can see this is my first leap into the forum and for a relatively new to DSLR (11 months) user it seems I could learn a lot. After reading several posts and checking out the photography I felt very good about this site and the great images people have produced.

This is my first offering a Motorbike Frog taken at a friends house south of Perth last week.

That's introducing yourself with a big bang! Awesome picture and if you are shooting a digital camera with an M42 lens on a bunch of extension tubes and getting incredible results like that, you can't be a stranger to photography. You can probably teach all of us a thing or two.

Welcome to Steve's Pentax group, and post more!

Hi Angler,

Welcome to the forum!

I love the six pointed "star" glint in the eye and agree with Harriet that this is an impressive introduction post.

I'm also looking forward to seeing more!

Scott

Welcome, Angler, to The Friendly Pentax Forum! Very impressive introduction of yourself with this image.
I wonder, how come 99,7 % of the Aussies here are from Perth? (sorry, Rodney, but it's a fact). A very pushy local dealer?

Thank all of you for your kind words. You are right Harriet I did play with 35mm photography years ago but had to go through to many rolls of film to get a keeper. It all got way too expensive when I moved to Perth 22 years ago I never had great equipment just run of the mill Canon. Six years ago I picked up my first digital camera a H/P 2MP. I used to send Pictures back to my family in the US. Since then I graduated to a Canon S2IS, Panasonic Lumix DMC - FZ50 and now the Pentax K20D.
The Pentax impressed me with the weather sealing (the dust hear is bad and it's very fine like talcum powder) and in-camera image stabilization. Before 10 months ago I had never heard of a Takumar now I own Three. I do a lot of research into different types of photography and on sites like this pick up tips and ideas to try Like Takumar lenses and extension tubes, I think my wife may kill me if any thing else comes in the mail from e bay :-)

Cheers Ed
