    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    Very nice, I like the first and last in particular. You might try an even slower shutter speed sometime; the moving dancers would be a blur of color.

    First experiences are always tough, particularly if I am used to shooting a certain type of environment (say daylight) and I went into something quite different (dancers/ low light, mixed light, etc.).

    I have found it best to repeat and learn, examine the shots etc.

    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    All here the 50-135mm. Shot close to high noon. I think on top of that I made them too contrasty.. on my calibrated monitor they look but on others it seems a bit too high contrast. Comments on that?

    Very harsh light and I would say too much contrast for that kind of lighting.

    Something Different - K5 & DA*16-50mm

    This is so different than what I normally shoot but I had to try it....

    A shot of smoke and fire, mostly fire with the K5 and the DA* 16-50mm. We rarely see the complexity of fire and smoke unless we can stop the action to look at it before it morphs into something the eye will miss and our brains will paint as "an average" of what we really saw due to persistence of vision.

    Thans. I think the light it is in can work but the contrast is too high. I tried a different version to ease that a bit. Need to re-upload.

    Should give it a try, I suppose. Very accessible. Bus stop right next to it. And the K-5 has pretty good high-ISO performance too.

    I think maybe trying even a tripod shot, low light with that kind of environment. I wonder even if long exposures with people running around in a blanket with a flash light inside or something. Or just use flash to have people around sitting and create an eerie bar atmosphere… just ideas.

    I don't know how likely it would be for the cops to stop by and ask you a few questions though :-)

    I suppose what I am trying to say is I think I would go to that location a few times (night or day) and try to get / try a lot of things on it. Seems interesting.

    Inverted blurred luminance channel blended with original.
    Does a lot to bring out detail and tame the harsh contrast.

    Um, this processing makes it look as though it was shot with expired or fogged film (see shadows reading below) …



    Ugly to my mind.

    Concept only, done on Web JPG not a raw file. Shows the detail is there.

    Charles and others- I would really appreciate if you do not alter my photographs or at least ask for permission of it first. I would kindly ask if you could please remove any altered photographs of mine you have in a website or gallery or for link. Thanks.

    I have already post processed this differently to tone down the contrast a bit. I will post them later. But please, stop using my photographs. Thanks.

    - Ricardo

    PS: I don't agree with the processing either. Again, I have to upload the news ones I did, where it looks better.

    HI Ricardo
    Great shot . . . lovely lens - that and the 35 were the two I miss most (and I certainly miss the camera).

    . . . and lots of great shots from everyone else as well . . . just to let you guys know that I'm still lookin'!

    Just this guy you know

    Malcolm, I like what you are doing with these blacksmith shots, though I wish you dialed down the "HDR" adjust :-) I think with better contrast, the sparks would stand out more in a magical way. I like your subject and what you are doing.

    LOL! :-)

    Well I was going to say, the irony is that it wasn't until recently, I see this is the lens you started the whole thread with :-) And I have to say I am blown away by this lens for three reasons:

    - it focuses much faster than I expected it to
    - image quality is simply beyond this world, heaven/angels coming down playing harps
    - that I "got it" at an intuitive level very fast (one weekend? that's way way fast). This makes me suspect maybe I am a tele photo street photographer after all.

    I was planning to buy the DA 40mm Ltd.. felt it was the focal length I was missing and a key lens for some street photography. Then there it was the FA 100 WR... because I could get both lenses at pre-USA hike pricesTM, I decided to buy the DA 40 and wasn't going to buy the FA, but you know, wanted to check it out so...

    I took just ONE snap inside the store and I was like "OMG! I am SOOO buying this." And that was that. :-) It's good to have macro capability but before I couldn't go for it because shooting insects is not one of the things I do. Little did I know this lens would be come immediately a great companion for street life and more over- got me just in that one weekend three potential photography business leads.

    Hi Raist,thanks for your thoughts and suggestion,you make a fair point and I have other shots processed a bit more conventionaly, and your right, they do work!By the way that 100mm macro looks to be a very good addition to your kit and seems to suit you very well indeed.

    Shortest answer: look here.

    Longer answer: I have taken an interest in this thing since construction began a few years ago. I have photographed it on a number of occasions, and had another go today with the K-5, walking around doing hand-held shots. It’s a bit of a warm-up/scouting expedition for when I go back with the medium-format kit. I really like the “tube” end (as seen in the pic—form following function), but detest the Morphett Road end.

    My wireless broadband account has been shaped because I hit my useage limit, so I won’t be posting much until the 8th. For some older stuff, mostly shot on MF, you can check out my MLKSHK page.

    Two more from yesterday, still at the Aquatic Centre. These were taken at the waterslide.

    A different subject, the Marion Council Library opposite (or behind) the Aquatic Centre. A very brutal building, but a nice library inside with a range of facilities. The lowering autumn clouds suited the mood perfectly.
