    Knorp- love your first shot quite a bit and the shot of people with reflections. The dog shot is lovely too, the dog looks oh so happy :-)

    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    @Jorgen: thank you ! Very nice of you to pop in.

    @Malcolm: thanks, but if I have to tell you about the PP then ...
    I was quite pleased how well the AF could keep up with that doggie.
    [about PP: C1 and B/W - Old Look 2 ]

    @Ricardo: thank you and happy dogs all around that morning, they love the beach and this little fellow was no exception !

    @Bogdan: well you could say it's kind of a disaster for the captain and the shipping company. The crew was unharmed and remained on board.

    @Roy: thank you, yes that dog seems to be running on water.
    No environmental disaster, I think only the captain lost his credits.
    The ship was pulled of the sandbank by two tugs later that afternoon and had surprisingly little damage.

    Kind regards.

    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    During my lunch hour today I visited Grapevine, Texas to see if any new train related photo-ops might present themselves. I was in luck. The old steam locomotive has been down for repair for almost two years now. The doors of the shed that houses her were open and one of the workmen let me in for a few pictures. Here is one that I really like. Pentax K5 Hand held, f/2.8 1/40s ISO 320 DA* 16-50mm

    Really impressive, Jim. What's even more impressive, though, is that you shot it with the much maligned 16-50...pleased to see that you are having the same good luck with this lens as Bart and myself.

    I should have used a tripod.. this was f/2.8 (wide open) and I should have known it would be soft.. also the 1/40s shutter speed did not help.. however; I have reworked the image using a different sharpening technique and it now looks much better.. also used the highlight/shadow adjustment and that made it even better. I'll repost it tonight on my website and possibly here as well.. the shot looks much better than this one.. at least to my eye.

    As for the lens.. I've had no issues with it so far.. heard stories of the motor going out but I needed a really good wide angle zoom and wanted to stay with Pentax lenses (that's all I own for the K5: FA 31,43, 77, and the zooms DA* 16-50 and 50-135... also the 35 macro. I do wish I had a faster, longer lens at times but not willing to drop $1K on one at this time.

    Jim, good to see steam is not dead and I hope they get this beauty fully restored in its former glory.
    Like you and Roy I too am still pretty pleased with the 16-50.
    It's funny, but I noticed that I shoot it or at 16 or at 50, there's very little in between.
    So far for a zoom lens ...

    Kind regards.

    Haven't used my K-5 in a bit of a while. I was checking out the 50-135 and the AF surprised me. Fairly fast, spot on. Near all the following shots have been cropped:

    Hello Jorgen,

    it's the FA-77 Limited in chrome. For some reason I can't understand, my C1 EXIFs do show the focal lengths but not the description of the lenses.

    Thank you and kind regards.

    Taken with the K5 and the DA* 16-50.

    I never shoot brick walls for test shots... I only shoot them when they have some character and good light.

    That was what I suspected. That lens keeps haunting me. Should I buy a K5 just for that lens

    Hi Jorgen
    you absolutely should buy a K5 just for that excellent lens!
    Jim, Ricardo, Bart - such good shots - perhaps if I got another K5 I could do as well

    I particularly like the train shot Jim . . . and the Guy walking and looking Ricardo (excellent). Bart, you're artichoke head with the lovely rythmn of the second head is really fine - excellent.

    all the best

    Just this guy you know

    A bit of close-up&macro, though not very convincing, I'm afraid ...

    Thanks for the compliment but there are much better than me out there.. I was sitting next to a few of them.

    BB looks good but sad to say, his show was not up to par. He, at times, looked and sounded a bit "out of it"... did not play nearly as much as he has in the past. I felt bad for him.

    Hi Jim,

    hope you don't mind me asking: but in what way were they "much better" ?
    I really think you did a grand job here with the K5 and 50-135

    Too bad about BB King: such a great musician, perhaps somebody should tell him to retire ...

    All the very best.

    I've seen their work... I just think they are better than me... younger too.

    Don't know what the deal was but he was "Off" Saturday night. Had I paid the $50 my seat would have cost I think I might have asked for some of it back. Less than a year ago he put on a great show but Saturday night was well below par.

    Here are two shots I took using the K5 and the DA* 16-50mm while in New Orleans last week. I love the way the Pentax K5 & lenses handle specular highlights.

    Jim, really dig that convert shot. Awesome tones and tonality. Subtle color. A question- maybe you talked about this already- how are you dealing with the AF now of your K-5? Are you just using MF?

    Great atmosphere in these excellent shots !
    I think with both the 16-50 and 50-135 you've got an excellent combo.
    I'm seriously thinking of selling off the 200 and get myself a 50-135 too.
    And then let's wait and see what that promised new tele-zoom does.

    certainly no "orbs" here ...

    I think there's a chance I may sell my 50-135 when the new telephoto DA * comes along. The new one is effectively Olympus' 12-60 in "range." If it's good it's all I need for a wedding. May opt then for the DA * 200 prime.

    Not any real problems with focus. I just have to realize the AF area is larger than indicated in the viewfinder.

    Beautiful shot of that young woman reading and gorgeous light in that last shot (Monastery of the Norbertine Sisters).
    That SMC 50/1.2 seems to be very sweet, Piotr !

    BTW checking out your website, I noticed you've been to Amsterdam

    @Bogdan: a very beautiful and inviting place, though a bit quiet it seems ...

    Kind regards.

    That SMC 50/1.2 seems to be very sweet, Piotr !

    BTW checking out your website, I noticed you've been to Amsterdam

    Thanks for sharing and kind regards.
    Thanks Knorp
    Yes i was in Amsterdam, my friends are living in Eindhoven and they take me for small trip. For few hours we had beautiful light. But I have to go for longer trip to see whole city.

    What an amazing find and so well executed !
    Very fitting and so perfectly in the spirit of M.C. Escher's work.
    As for the title, Escher liked short and simple descriptions: what about "BRICKS II" ?

    Kind regards.

    Lake Pontchatrain with the K5 and DA * 16-50mm

    Here's a shot I took early in the morning while in New Orleans with the K5 and the DA * 16-50mm I'm liking that lens more and more. ISO 160 F/7.1 1/320s Post work in Photoshop CS5.
