Rondec-- Thanks for the encouragement...though I think I'll lock down my ballpeen hammer collection just to be safe. I'll look forward to seeing your next work...

These shots almost--but I think not quite--violate the 'no more tests' title. I've just borrowed a friend's D FA 100 WR, and I was anxious to see how the lens could handle non-Macro subjects of the kind I lean towards more than Macro so I took it with me this afternoon.

I know it has been posted before, but I just wanted to share a couple of "before" and "after" photos, demonstrating what the K5 is capable of in regard to recovery of shadow detail.

Unprocessed original:




After processing:




I just think that it is amazing what you can do with a K5 file at iso 80, compared with nearly any other camera (even full frame) on the market today.

Rondec-- Excellent, it's amazing what's hiding in the shadows--which is important to me, since it gets dark early down in some of our hollers. FWIW, I would be very proud indeed to have produced "Attempt 2"--it gives me hope that I might find some decent captures even while serving my post processing apprenticeship.

Thank you Jean ! Can't remember. It is very rare. I think there was one last month here on the marketplace for a couple of hours and was directly sold...
It is a shame that Kenko doesn't make it for Pentax any more
Thanks for your answer Frederic, and it figures that I would want something which is rare and out of production ... I will watch the marketplace a little bit more now ... J

Milky Way, A Meteor & Me

I spent all of Friday evening and early Saturday morning (about 3am) shooting from various locations in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma. I met a rancher not long ago and asked permission to shoot on his property... very rugged property. He gave me permission and this is one of many shots taken during the night in the Wichita Mountains. To the best of my knowledge, no one had ever photographed the night sky from this vantage point.

I was painting the rock formation with light from a flashlight and the meteor showed up in the last 10 seconds of my exposure.. very lucky.

Pentax K5 IIs with the DA* 16-50mm Post work in Photoshop CS6.

Note, some have suggested that the blue tint/cast should be corrected. I do not desire to do so. I am not trying to be scientific here. I just like the way this looks, accurate or not. WB was set to Tungsten due to light pollution from Fort Sill and Lawton, OK.

Both of these were shot with multiple exposures, using HDR Efex and then using Silver Efex to convert them to B and W.

These were the color shots that I got:

Barnyard (color)


Tree (color)
Excellent shots, both in color and b&w. I am finding Viveza 2 in the Nik Collection to be a very useful tool for selective adjustments.
