Default Finally in the PPG

Well, it has been somewhat discouraging at times but I finally got an image into the Pentax Photo Gallery, the exposure isn't great but the composition must have made up for it. That 10-17mm fisheye came through for me.

This may sound shallow but this has been like the Grail Quest for me.

Here is a picture of the North Atlantic Aviation Museum in Gander Newfoundland taken last winter with the K10D and the DA 10-17mm.

Congrats! I think ppg is a wonderful opportunity to show off your best work. But it sounds like there's quite an obligation when you are accepted - voting on other people's photos. To me that sounded like a huge time commitment, time I don't have (I barely keep up here, let alone another board on a different topic where I used to be very active). You, on the other hand, considering where you are right now, will probably have lots of time to keep up with your voting obligation! It's great that you finally got a picture in. I remember when you posted that one, it was quite a while ago. I liked it then - the fisheye did a good job of making the picture interesting.

Harriet, it isn't all that much trouble, I usually just go through about ten pictures a day (that is two screens of images). The biggest problem is that the site is very slow to load up here.

Thanks, I wish I had taken the time to get the exposure right, the snow is really blown out.

Many congratulations. Mind you, that is a great composition. I had to look carefully as I couldn't quite work out what it was at first.
Excellent use of the fisheye!
