Simon, Frederic - so much great output from you both... keep posting!



Twitch - amazing work AS ALWAYS... that "pointy house" must have been a fun subject to photograph



IIGQ4U - love the telescopic Cabrillo photo!



philby85 - great sunrise shots!

Here's one of my daughter, surrounded by Christmas trees. I can't stop with the Silver Efex. And so happy with the ISO performance of this camera.

1/100; f/2.8; ISO 2500
I bet she was saying "Can I have this Teddy NOW!" Nice overall ambience in that shot Mr Freeze.

Very nice Antifreez. I need to check out Silver Efex.
Silver Efex is the only plug in I've used from Nik Software. It really is a joy if you like B&W conversions. I can't seem to do anything but, nowadays. Thanks for your comment, I'm glad you like the photo

Lovely shot Antifreez ! And excellent treatment !
Thank you Frederic - taking a 2nd look it seems like it could use an increase in brightness but I'm happy with it overall. The K5 and FA31 really leave you with a lot of room to play with in PP.

haha! I was standing next to the decorator of the tree at the time. She almost lost it at the sight of my daughter aabout to rip the bear out of the tree. I had to get the pic first... then tell her to "not touch"

Wow, that vulture pic is awesome! Very nice!

This is a portrait shot of my nephew snapped this evening in my brother's kitchen. It is cropped to remove a cabinet on my nephew's immediate left.

Flash in manual mode and bounced off of ceiling with background lighting dimmed to create a dark background.

Very minimal post processing.

Great shots! The only wildlife around here are pigeons and a few magpies.

PS: BIF still applies to both of your pictures. ;-)

Tank you! We were out walking through an area where some lions had had a night snack (poor puku...), and I got lucky at one of my attempts to catch a vulture in flight.

Thank you The wildlife in Zambia is certainly more abundant than here at home!

And, yes, I suppose the second one also qualifies as BIF

Wow ! Fantastic shot ! The 55-300 has nearly the same bokeh as the DA* 55.

Lovely portrait. One would think you used a big softbox...
