Must be good corn? If they don't like something they will turn their back and refuse to pose.....

Exotic nuts.....must be good!

our corn in Australia is yellow on yellow, the red husk is very interesting.

Carrie - love the DOF and colors well done
Jeff - nice series - serious Bokeh on that flower shot. love the bridge as well
CraneGuy1 (BTW who the hell was CraneGuy0 ha! ) - cool peir was the water really that color ? soooooooooooo blue
Rupert Nice action shots of Otis !

Now here's a different kind of rodent - not sure this little fellow made it as the magpies and ravens were circling above as I took this shot -a baby about as big as my Index finger and maybe twice as thick nice snack for predators for sure....

Wow - the frst thing that impressed me about the K5 was as almost eveyone mentions is the high ISO capabilites. Having played with it for a couple of days now the second most impressive thing is the meetering. As I process my shots - most have a straight horizon (yeah level) and most need very little PP other than a crop.

I like it , I like it a lot

I am not sure if I uploaded these correctly but I thought that I would give it a try.

This was my first real attempt to use my K-5. I think that these were all jpg's except for one dng that I spruced up a bit with Photoshop. I realize now how a faster SD card would help shooting more RAW. I shot all of these with an old school MF 135 / F2.5. The tiger was shot through plexi.

Hi Twitch

Docklands Melbourne
I have a shot of roughly the same location, difference being, mine was taken some 20 years ago on film. (Can't remember exactly when) I know this here is a digital forum but I thought it is interesting to see how things have changed.

Greetings

I love the flamingos. shooting through plexiglass is always fraught. Does terrible things to the light and even if you have a great lens... Still, a decent shot of a gorgeous creature ( I adore tigers)
