Thanks FS!... but superb are the shots you post, Otis says mine are just ordinary or less in comparison! I really like the mood in that last one! Love the yellow blast in the first one too!
Thank you ! Don't listen Otis ! He's wrong

So what's an insomniac to do at 1:30AM on a damp Sunday morning? Why, play with the fisheye of course!

K-5 IIs, Rokinon 8mm f3.5 "Fisheye"

Usually when I wake up early in the morning hours...it's to go pee!

Nothing much here...an ISO 10,000 Squirrel. Not to bad, the K5IIs is a neat camera!

Pretty sweet at that ISO.

Finally, a halfway decent spring day. Seems like the blooms are enjoying it.

Lovely shot 1952! What are those blooms?

Regards!

I've got a lot to do today, and don't have time for Otis and his antics.....so I'm going to drop him off here until this afternoon late.

He likes FS so maybe he won't cause too much trouble. Try to keep an eye on him anyhow, if he gets loose on the Forum and runs wild, all hell will break out!

See you later Otis....for their own safety, don't go home with strangers!

You're leaving me here?


OK...What could go wrong!

Yes! I recognize it now! Thanks!

If you are not a perfectionist, the K5IIs will get you a shot at ISO 5,000. Otis will give me another warning about wasting card space on worthless birds, but since I left him over here this morning, he can bite one of you instead of me!



Regards....anyone interested in adopting Otis? He's smart, and handsome.....sure, he causes a lot of trouble, but he says "real men" can handle it.

FS...he showed up over in the Lounge...I think he's there for the free booze and fat cigars?

Regards & Thanks!

While I am here.....I run some through PhotoShop Pro using only their "Clarify" action after processing.Do you think it is better or worse?

After "clarify" action ....

Great shots everybody.
Especially that fisheye!!

I like the first shot of the Jay better, but that's just me, it feels more alive.
The second shot is clearer, with greater clarity and more vibrant colours, but I just think it looks a bit clinical.


Otis always comes out well, tried shooting a few of his cousins over here, but they don't want to stay still long enough to pose for me.
Always running from one tree to another...
Have to find something to shoot now that 24 hour daylight has hit here, no more astro photos until August.

Cheers


Leon
