Default new pics with the k20d

These are just some of the newer photos I've taken, not the best but the ones Ive gotten around to converting to Jpegs.

Im loving the pentax, the raws are so amazing, it really ticks me off to see them in peg form..

Anyways Ive got tons of photos to show but heres a variety of some of the newer ones, some of these taken this morning.

Enjoy.

BTW, these are taken with my new tamron 28-200mm,



Believe it or not, this one is a panoramic shot, complied of just two images.

This is a huge building on mainstreet walking distance from house. So big that taking it as a portrait, I had to incorporate two shots together to get it to fit. I could have just brought my 18-55 or my 28mm perhaps, but I think it came out well. You shoulda seen the tweaking I had to do to remove the warped effect of combining the images and the building distortion with the telephoto lens. Drastic measures



the 200mm isnt the best for telephoto I realized. which is a bit of a disappointment, but alas ive found many fine uses for it. This is taken at 100% magnification. What bird is this? Ive got tons of shots with this bird but this one I loved his expression.



I actually darkened this one up to give it a better feel with the shadows. walking down the street.



I love this shot, the backlighting and side lighting are superb. Was going to origionally do more of a macro shot on these flowers, but I saved it for a diff one. This one is actually pretty much the origional shot, +1 contrast




This is a 1/4 crop of the left side, I cropped to emphasize shadows and the depth in this pretty cool 3d photo . Again I really liked the backlighting. +2 contrast helped me define the windows on the left.




thanks for looking

Very nice. Looks like you're getting to know your new camera pretty well.

I really like the first and last ones. Is that a spot on your sensor showing in the last one?

Thanks for the comments

You can set the camera to shake the sensor every time you turn it on.

Very nice series! The first one is very good - I was looking at it and wondering how in the world you managed it since it was a vertical pano - thanks for explaining how you did it (a good piece of processing, really well done). And I love the last one, the colors with the silhouette really is outstanding.

Looks like you are having great fun, which is what you should be doing.

Nice shots. Number one is a great job of pano stitching and fixing the distortion.

It looks like you are doing very well with the new camera.

Thanks for the comments and taking a look.

Just to correct my wording; When I said the tamron 28-200mm isn't the best telephoto lens, I meant wild life lens. (Which is probably pretty obvious to most of you) All these shots are hand held, so Ill have to give it a go with my tripod and see if I can get any more defined bird shots.


So no identification on that bird?

Has a blue back of neck and a sparkling emerald chest. Ive got about 40 more pics of it, will try to get those rendered to jpegs sometime.

Going to cherry blossom festival tomorrow in DC, I will upload some when I get back


Take care!
