Experimenting with DA 70

My wife and I spent yesterday afternoon hanging out on our boat at the marina. Took some shots with the DA 70 my generous bride gave me for Christmas; photos were shot with a K10D in RAW and converted to JPEG with Photolab 3 (I'm also playing with the beta version of Bibble, but didn't use it here).

Neighbor's Bow Sprit:



Jib Sheet Turning Block on our Catalina 30:



Dock Line:



First Mate at Sea - Boss Ashore:



Anyway, it was a nice sunny afternoon to cap off 2006. I wish everyone a terrific 2007.

Great lens and it has so many possibilities!

The bokeh in 1st pic is quite good, resistant to CA bokeh there.

Colour is in deed vibrant as well

Maybe a quick review in review section as well?

Happny new year

Those are fun and detailed shots. I really like the cleat/rope combo. First mate ain't too bad either.

Hey Roy. We sail "Cut Time", our Catalina 30 Mk III, which is - in fact - docked in Kemah on the south shore of Clear Lake.
