More DA 18-250 Examples

I suppose the forum is starting to get choked with Tamron and Pentax 18-250 images. Nevertheless, I decided to post some more, since I appreciate seeing pictures taken with new-to-the-market lenses in order to gauge my own interest. This is an eclectic group of shots taken a couple of days ago in the marina where we dock our boat.

Roy:

Newbie question here. How do you determine they were shot at f11? Do you download the pic and then use a separate program to see the data, or do you have something set up that tells you this automatically?

No need to download a picture to see what it was shot at. Take a look at this free software:
Exif viewer : Opanda IExif - Professional EXIF / GPS / IPTC Viewer & Editor in Windows, IE & Firefox

It will allow you to rightclick on the picture and give you the exif info.

Or just use Opera (Opera browser: Home page), it has built in EXIF information reader (right click the image and choose image properties).

Hey, Roy. I dock my boat, a Catalina 30 MkIII, in Kemah at Waterford Harbor Marina. And by golly you're right - all of the shots I posted above are at f/11, something I never noticed.

Here are three others (all at ISO 100); the first two are wide open or nearly so.

55mm, 1/90 @ f/4.5:



143 mm, 1/350 @ f/5.6:



120 mm, 1/250 @ f/8:

My friend, ya'll* not only got class you got real moxie!

BTW, after a year or two in the Texas sun, the green hull will have faded to white; remember, down here we got real healthy photons that zero in with unrestrained determination, not the sickly ones that occasionally are forced to fall on NY against their will.

*Note that my southern credentials are pretty weak; other than 4 years in Nashville (Go Vandy: 14-0 as of tonight) for grad school, I spent the first 49 years of my life in Illinois, Boston, Ohio and Michigan. There are things about all of them that I miss (I'm still a dedicated Red Sox fan), but I do love a 12-month sailing season.
