The Making of "Car of the Newlyweds"

The winning image in our "Wrapped, Covered or Packaged" photo contest

By LucaK10 in Photo Contests on Dec 17, 2014

It was the second time that I participated in the monthly photo contest on the PentaxForums and I am delighted that my photo won the contest "Wrapped, Covered, or Packaged". I looked forward to the outcome of the contest and I burst with joy at the news that I had won!

I made this photo at the wedding of a friend in Verona. I was not the official photographer of the wedding but all the same I brought my K10D with me.

The Making of "The Storm is Coming"

The winning image in our "Complementary Colors" photo contest

By gzub in Photo Contests on Nov 9, 2014

What a great message at the beginning of the week! Love to start a monday with such news. Would like to thank everyone who nominated and voted my photo "Storm is Coming" for the Complementing Colors photo contest in September on Pentaxforums.com.

This picture was taken during summer time in Poland. I was visiting a little village at the Baltic sea side called Jaroslawiec in northern part of Poland. I remember it did not look like it was going to be a perfect day for pictures. It was a really windy day and even raining from time to time. But it looked like something was going to happen - I was waiting for a storm and looking to find some nice theme as the forefront of my pictures. When I was walking down the beach I encountered the fishing port with a few boats pulled up on the beach. That was it I said to myself.
