Love the photos!

I know what you mean about the 28mm lens, though I've never used one. I do have the 24mm f2.8 and find it's really difficult to focus, at least it was on the K-S1. In fact,...

Welcome back! I’ve been one of the missing for a couple of years, too. I’ve had a number of life changes in the past 5 years, Dan passed away, I retired last year and bought an RV, my first. There’s...

With my KS1 out of commission (but repairable), I took my K100 as a second camera this summer. I used it a bit but not as much as I had thought I would. I liked the results but couldn’t always...

Very nice shots! I really like the first one, it’s the type of thing I like. The second one has an interesting mood to it, you carried it off perfectly.

HDR Experiment

I bought Aurora HDR software for Christmas and have been playing around with it some. Like all of the other HDR software I've tried, it doesn't do what I always want it to do, but my initial...

Very cool! What lens did you use to take the picture? I really like how this came out!

I haven't used my Q in ages, I should get it out and see if it will still work. It was fun to use because...

Looks like you had a good time, love the photos even if I think it's a little early for Christmas decorations. And it's a nice area, I enjoyed Pigeon Forge this spring when I was there. I didn't go...

Wow, Paul, that’s bad news all the way around! Hope the knee surgery goes as well as the heart repair did.

Not bad, but there’s always a learning curve with any new camera. I still get a bit frustrated with the K1 when it does something unexpected. And while I usually keep it at -1/3 stop EV, recently...

I'm still happily shooting Pentax, and have no desire to change - I couldn't afford it now. And I can't think of any good reason to change, either. My Pentax gear is good enough for me - any issues...

Thanks! The mountain shot was a quick photo taken from a turn-out as I was leaving Jackson. I had stopped to adjust my mirrors at a turn-out in the national park and couldn't resist the scenery. ...

During the eclipse I was using a K100 as a second camera, so don't feel badly about using a K20 and the new K70. I'm in no rush to get a second camera right now, but could be talked into one if...

Looks like a fun time to be at the races, and a nice photo op. Love the helmet photos, though the fisheye shot reminds me why I bought one in the first place - they can be lots of fun.

Since my KS1 has developed the aperture module problem (or whatever it is), I'm sort-of looking for something to replace it with. I really want another KS1 since I want small and...

I don't have that lens but am always a bit suspicious about lenses that try to do too much. Photography is about compromise and if you make too many compromises, you end up with poor quality. I've...
