K-5 plus Blast from the Past

So, some of us got K-5. We make photos, It could be interesting to show how old lenses work with brand new body.
For the beginning.
My photo. Was made almost 2 hour ago by 35 year old lens: SMC Pentax 35mm/ f3.5

Make:PENTAX
Model:PENTAX K-5
Shutter Speed:30/1 second
Focal Length:35 mm
ISO Speed:80
Date Taken:Nov 16, 2010, 8:22:02 PM
Software:K-5 Ver 1.00



Working with manual Lens o K-5: as always very good if you know what to do.

Best Regards and Have fun with new toy

This is one heck of a good image! Congrats!

Now, I must ask: did you Photoshop this at all, or with any other PP software or it this straight out of the camera?

Cheers.

Imie rózy (1986) ???

Man... your magnificent pic instantly bought vivid images of that to my mind.
I really love the tobacco~pink ominous sky, like it's reflecting the aura of a bloodstained scene.

The Name of the Rose (1986) - IMDb

Its a great photo... would have been a brilliant one if you had of captured the very top of the tower in the background which still as it is adds a very haunting aspect to this photo.

cheers

Agreed. A poor crop.

That was "bang on"!

So I see you used LR3.2; thanks for replying.
More and more people seem to be using LR, so I suppose it is also becoming more popular than the full fledged Photoshop?

Cheers.

Yes I choose LR because I need lightroom. I don't have time to use Photoshop. I shot in RAW so I need something to check all photos fast and accurate to correct side of view, luminance, light contrast light temperature ect. By LR I can process over 50 photos per hour so it is quite fast. Of course some photos take more time but for usually photos 1-2minute its enough for me.
