Ditto! Great stuff everyone, and Luis, I liked the hatchling, it spoke to me...


And your stuff is up to it's usual snuff FS, and I gotta say, that wine looks pretty good, it certainly had some legs!

The sun
WOW! I really like that shot, excellent...perfect for printing and framing!

A couple of little birdies I shot during the snow we had this week. I have been thinking of the K5IIs, but it looks like my K5 is still plenty good from what I see you guys post here. Do you think I would really gain much with the K5IIs? Keeping in mind, 90% of my shooting is with Toy Cameras, I'm not sure I would get any benefit?

The birdies...




Reds are so hard!

I have been experimenting with black&white conversions on some older images. Fascinating how different results one can get with different adjustments for b&w.

For fun and since it was warm, but a bit cloudy at times this afternoon (and yesterday), I experimented with my newest projector lens acquisition. A Wetzlar Reflecta Agomar 90/2.8 MC which I chopped off the end of the focus tube to have (past) infinity on the bellows. Still learning a bit here, and that's most of the fun.

Fantastic B/W shots Savoche! Just excellent!
Jean...the last one was my favorite, just wonderful!
FS....the golden leaves did it for my eyes! What a lovely shot!

I got a little better detail this evening on a Cardinal......he comes around every evening, perches on a chair out my office window and looks in to see what I am up to. If you are close enough, ISO 3200 will look pretty decent on the K5! The color even held up very accurately too!

Thanks guys!

Here's another attempt, but I'm not quite happy with it. I think it's because of the softer contrast on the left side of the street. The sun just wouldn't move to the right spot

Everyone loves a Jay!


Well, maybe not poor little starving orphan squirrels that have their peanuts robbed by Jays?


You guys over here don't forget.....you too can contribute to Otis' "Save the Starving Orphan Squirrel Fund".
