    K5 and 21mm f3.2 Ltd

    Went up on the moor to check out my new 21mm f 3.2 Ltd. It's so cute and on top of that it seems good for taking pictures.
    Been lazy and these are just jpegs out of the camera, except the panoramas. These were hand held no pano head, just wanted to see how it/we managed.
    The Tor against the sky had a bit of shadows/highlights adjustment.
    Colours are so different from Nikon, think I'll have to warm AWB up a bit.

    Nice set of images, David. Not a bad little lens, I've found.

    Hi David
    Looking good - love the panorama of the tor - excellent (very reminiscent of the part of Cornwall I know so well).

    As for the colour - I always thought Nikon colours for nature were too yellow - just take a look at the sky outside . . . isn't that just like the Pentax sky? Seems like it to me.

    all the best

    Just this guy you know

    Your right about colours I just want to warm them up a bit, I did the Tor, took me ages to balance the stones The shots stitched together in CS easily so that was good, meaning no issues with edges.
    See you were out enjoying the sky yesterday. More blue sky today, but it's fading. If it stays good I'll be back up off to the bluebells on the moor this afternoon. Going to 50-135 them I think, and I always do a panorama
