The Making of "Stone Chairs"

How the winning image of our September, 2017 "Repeating Patterns" photo contest was made

By mymage in Photo Contests on Oct 27, 2016

Hi to all Pentaxians and a special thanks to those of you who voted for my photo. I was nicely surprised to find that the photo I proposed got all this attention since it is a bit "flat"!

"Stone Chairs"

Anyway, a long long time ago, just after the battle of Dantooine, there was a time in which I took photos especially during the week ends, walking around the city searching for something interesting. My camera was a Pentax K-7 with an smc Pentax-FA 80-320mm F4.5-5.6 lens. I arrived around 10:30 AM at a place prepared for a night projection of a film, it was summer and a sunny day. The black seats were just positioned so they were nicely lined up and cleaned:

The Making of "Midsummer Sun"

Winner of our August, 2016 "Celebration" photo contest

"Midsummer Sun" by Tapio Kekkonen

First I want to thank all of you who liked this photo and gave it your vote.

It was quite easy to take this foto. This situation is real as you can see from the very relaxed attitude of all my friends who I have to thank also.

We had gathered together to celebrate the midsummer evening by having dinner on the beach of Varisniemi in Hanko town in Finland. This is perhaps on of the most beautiful places in this country. My Pentax K-3 was on a tripod so that I could be also be enjoying this nice moment and the offerings on the table. By just taking some photos with remote the trigger I got this photo which took the first price in PentaxForum's contest "Celebration".
