A couple of fake tilt-shift images. First attempt on this, so I'm on the very early part of the learning curve. Tricky to get it right, but hoping to get there.

K-5, Tamron 17-50/2.8, Gimp


at first glance I thought these were images of a Toy railway set,,Thomas the Tank engine type of deal...looks cool

"My Little Monsters"

A boring, Non-HDR Version :

Pentax K-5
Pentax DA 10-17mm Fisheye Lens @ 11mm
ISO80
f/4.0
1/30s
Bounced flash (set to -1.3 EV on flash) inside the clothes dryer (PTTL)
Flash exposure also set to -1.0 EV within camera

Just used Topaz Adjust to get a good Monster feel. Cropped a little too and then PhotoFrame for the frame effect.

The K-5 is freaking sweet! Amazing sharpness.



Errr, NO! HDR would have ruined this shot.

Absolutely fantastic picture!!!! Rep for that!!!

Anyone made a DR test comparison of the K5 vs K200D?

I don't have a direct comparison shot, but as a K200D owner, I have to tell you that I'm blown away by the DR of the K-5. Here's a shot taken about a week ago at La Jolla, California. Notice the detail in both the sunlit areas and in the shadows. I can tell you that would not have been possible with the K200D. I loved the K200D, but so much more is possible with the K-5.

Thanks Phillippe!
Next dumb question: How do I see the EXIF? All I see is Andi's comment and the picture itself!

Use Firefox and install the add on EXIF Viewer 1.55


Then all you have to do is right clock on an image on the 'Web' and select "View Image EXIF Data"

I am finding that the DR is helping with the richness of my B/W conversions. Another studio shot - single light. Here you go...

because the buildings are straight up and down, it looks amateur to not correct the lens distortion.
