    I don't really like Bridge much either, but I've found that it's easier to pick the photo I'm looking for looking there than in Finder. Also, I use it to rotate photos that are taken in portrait format, since I don't use in-camera rotate. It's also a nice tool to use when adding a set of EXIF data (copyright info, keywords, location etc.) to a whole folder in one go.

    Let me bore you with two more....

    I have the good fortune of being able to use a balcony at the intersection of Toulouse and Bourbon Streets during Mardi Gras.. it's a great vantage point to watch people and shoot from above.

    This year's celebration was a mix of rain, fog and sun... this shot was interesting to me because of the fog in the distance as I looked east on Toulouse Street towards the Mississippi River.



    And here is one of a group that refers to themselves as The Departed Spirits.. easy to see why.



    Both with the K5 IIs

    I like the shot. Nice expression, tonality and the blur in a way makes it look more like a dream.

    I can say that I also like black cameras, but that's mainly because they are more invisible in street life.

    Comment 1: Is that moire in the guy's hair, or is that really the texture of the hair?

    Comment 2: When I look at the original size version, I see that his upper teeth have blue/purple bottoms? Was this color actually on his teeth or is it something to do with the camera/lens combo?
    OMG LOL. You should see the Sigma forum over there. But to that forum's credit, there's a surprising amount of lurkers that actually can take a photo. But they are not the vocal minority that all they seem to fantasize about is sharp pixels and wall to wall prints.

    One from this weekend - Last Stop

    I came across this abandoned gas station near Hillsboro, Texas while searching for Texas Blue Bonnets and other wild flowers that are blooming like crazy all over Texas this time of year.

    I'm not sure what occurred here. Maybe the place caught on fire and the old car was there at the time or maybe it was brought to the old gas station at a later time... at any rate, I saw it and knew I had to shoot it. It was during the "Golden Hour" which accounts for the very warm light and brilliant color.

    It would have been a better shot if could have gotten both of the old gas pumps completely in the photo but I was shooting through a fence and this was the best I could do with the 16-50.

    Pentax K5 IIs and DA* 16-50mm. I added just a touch of tone mapping. colors are very accurate.. it was beautiful this weekend in Texas.

    California Dreamin'

    A shot I took last year of the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco... just revisiting some old shots tonight. Never posted this one so thought I would share it.



    Might as well throw this one in as well.. taken at an auto graveyard not far from Dallas. I love the color of the oxidized paint on these old cars.

    Sunset On Lake Pontchartrain - New Orleans

    I used Google Earth to search the shores of Lake Pontchartrain to look for something interesting to shoot when I was in New Orleans. I found what appeared to be an abandoned boat of some kind and made my way
    across the lake to find it. I arrived just as the sun was beginning to set. This is the shot I was able to get before I lost the light.

    Seems like I am the only one posting here lately... where have you guys gone?

    Excellent as usual, Jim. I'm sorry that I can't keep you company on this thread, but Pentax doesn't have a reliable distributor in this country. If they had, I would have had the K5 long ago.

    Hi Jim,
    Really enjoying your images,quality and interesting as always.
    NOT enjoying how your mk11s is making my wallet very nervous.
    A few "birds on sticks" from last weekend.Some nice detail revealing light for a change.taken with Sigma 50-500 o/s.The mk11s would have loved it I think.And an image that required next to no detail.With kit 18-50 and Tamron 70-200.
    Regards
    Malcolm

    Oak Alley Plantation

    Not too far from New Orleans is one of the most beautiful southern mansions you will ever wish to visit. Oak Alley Plantation is amazing. I have seen photos of it before but wanted to shoot it myself. Shot with the K5 IIs and the DA* 16-50.

    A stately mansion indeed and captured beautifully.
    Those 300 year oaks are magnificent as well.

    Jim, out of curiosity - where did you focus and what f-stop ?

    TIA

    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    ENNALYT 1:4/24mm WA-macro (Enna Munich), minimum focus distance is approximately 7.0" or just under 0,18mtr.
    Though I have this lens for quite a while I actually never used it.
    Reason is that it doesn't lock properly, it just doesn't snap in to place.
    Anyway, I took out for a spin today.
    It's perhaps not super sharp and contrasty, but found myself pleasantly surprised nonetheless.

    Focus was on the last tree arch at f/8.. I figured that would keep everything in decent focus/DOF.

    For Tom just for fun a few snaps with the 50/1.2 wide open.
    Honestly I'm not particularly happy with these shots as the DOF is just so shallow it looks like nothing is in focus.
    Still, good fun ..

    I like those shots.... I have a Minolta 58mm f/1.2 that is really good for subject isolation and the bokeh is smooth as butter... but as you said, unless everything is on the same plane and you are at the correct distance from the subject it doesn't not work as well as possible.... I had hopes that the Minolta would work on my K5 but it seems it is one of the few lenses that has physical issues with the K5. It is outstanding on my GH2 and the X-Pro1.

    Take a look here at the lens..

    Quite some lens for sure, Jim.
    Reading that article the conversion to whatever mount is no small feat.
    Too bad it won't mount to your K5, but I reckon on your X-Pro1 it delivers the goodies in bucket loads.
    Care to share a link ?

    Only one photo online at this time... you may have seen it. I shot it at f/2.8 because the DOF would have been to shallow at f/1.2 being that close to the subject.

    LOL - yes I've seen this portrait many times before, shot with as many cameras !
    But it's looking fab and I think you really have an outstanding lens here.

    I'll try to get some more samples online. I look at it as a specialty lens and not one that I carry in the bag all the time.. and to be honest, I bought it for one reason.. extreme low light/shallow DOF use. I have a ND filter for it somewhere but have not been able to find it... when I do, I'll take it out for a spin in daylight hours.

    I tried to buy this lens on several eBay auctions and got out bid at the last second every time.. I finally just found a buy it now opportunity and bought it. It is a lens that is in demand.. video guys are snapping them up as soon as they become available.

    Crazy, Pompeď like, situation here. Looks like the guy left the door open to pay, buy a snack and off he goes! Oops no wheels.

    Wondefull shots on fine locations you are doing, Jim. My compliments!

    Railroad Fans... here's one for you!

    This old steam locomotive has been sitting in the barn for 3 years due to a busted piston. I stopped by today to see if any progress had been made and she was alive with steam ready to roll out this weekend for the first time in 3 years in Grapevine, Texas.

    And one more in B&W

    You can't shoot these old locomotives without doing a B&W conversion... it just ain't right... so here is a B&W from a different angle.

    Roll Out Day for Puffy

    Today was the official roll out day for the old locomotive after the repairs. I arrived at the engine barn around 7:30am and spoke with the guys who had been working on it for the last three years and asked if I could get a group shot of them with the locomotive (Puffy is its name), they obliged me and I told them I wanted to do something that looked "Old School".. here is the result of that effort.

    Beautiful photographs Jim!

    I hope that you and your family, friends, neighbors and the rail yard staff escaped the recent tornado activity in the Dallas area.

    We did but it was a scary night.. I had a constant eye on the local TV coverage of the storm as moved through the area. The devastation left behind by that storm is hard to believe. It looks like a war zone.

    The 2nd really shows the beauty of the region. I fell in love with the Pacific NW when I first drove through in 1973. You are fortunate to live there.

    One from today.. Turner Falls, Oklahoma

    A friend and I drove from Dallas to Oklahoma City today to check out the tornado damage in that area. On the way back we stopped at Turner Falls in Davis, OK and I took this shot in the late afternoon sun using the K5 IIs and the DA* 16-50mm
    ISO was 200 f/8 @ 1/250s. This is a shot of the section above the 75 ft waterfall which is the main attraction of Turner Falls.

    Note, I did not sharpen this photo. At f/8 (with the DA* 16-50) the K5 IIs just does not seem to need any sharpening.

    Had I had my tripod with me and the appropriate ND filter I would have tried for one of those lovely milky, running water shots.. maybe next trip up there.



    And here is a shot taken from an outlook about a quarter of a mile or more away from the falls...(I'm a bad judge of distance) This one was taken with the DA* 50-135mm
